10/04/2012 - Make it in Great Britain - Competition to Find Best UK Innovations: Extended Deadline
The Make it in Great Britain Challenge forms part of the Make it in Great Britain campaign, which aims to change the image of modern manufacturing. The Challenge is being organised by the Department for Business, Innovation & Skills (BIS).
The competition aims to find the most innovative pre-market products, processes and concepts the UK has to offer.
Entries across the following five categories, representing the breadth and depth of the manufacturing industry and highlighting the innovation and talent in Britain today, are being accepted:
- Make it…Stronger.
- Make it…Smarter.
- Make it…Sustainable.
- Make it…Life changing.
- Make it…Breakthrough (for 16-21 year old entrants only).
The winning entries from each category will showcase their creations on a weekly basis at the Make it in Great Britain exhibition at the Science Museum in London, which will coincide with the Olympic and Paralympic Games in summer 2012. Visitors to the six-week exhibition will be invited to vote on their favourite entry. The winners from each weekly vote will feature together in the final week of the exhibit.
The Make it in Great Britain Challenge is open to inventors, manufacturers, engineers, designers, businesses of all sizes, young people and the general public.
The deadline for the Challenge has been extended to 13 April 2012 in order to give more flexibility around the academic calendar, and to ensure as many people and companies as possible are given the chance to participate.
