The Hawley Award, established in 2006, is awarded annually for the most outstanding Engineering Innovation that delivers demonstrable benefit to the environment.
To be eligible for the award, the application must be made by:
- A candidate who is resident in the UK and a graduate or more senior member of a recognised Engineering Institution.
- Is an early career stage engineer or scientist, in academia or industry, typically within 10 years of starting a professional career.
- An individual candidate who has personally produced an engineering innovation. Exceptionally, a small team may be considered where the innovation has a highly multi-disciplinary nature.
The Award comprises a cash prize of up to £5,000, an engraved medal and a certificate, which will be presented at the Worshipful Company of Engineers Annual Awards Dinner in July.
The cash is to be used in furtherance of the winner’s career, such as educational overseas travel, and the winner will be expected to submit a short report, which may be published, on how the money has been used.
The submission should demonstrate how the development has, or would, make positive improvements to the environment, and must be certified by a director or senior manager of the organisation to endorse that the candidate did make the contribution claimed.
