Innovation takes many forms. Scientific and technological breakthroughs tend to get the most attention. A new vaccine that saves children’s lives. A new labour-saving device which costs very little to purchase, but once put to use will save thousands for the average household. Of course, the science and technology sector is not the only measure of successful innovation. Innovation also happens incrementally within the world of business and in service industries, often building on previous advances. We devised six award categories to reflect this diversity.
