Entries are now open for the 2018 Royal Academy of Engineering MacRobert Award. 

The MacRobert Award, first presented in 1969, is the UK's longest-running and most prestigious national prize for engineering innovation.  

It honours the winning organisation with a gold medal, and the team members a cash prize of £50,000. The presentation of the award recognises outstanding innovation, tangible societal benefit and proven commercial success.

Past winners have included the engineers behind innovations such as the Pegasus jet engine, catalytic converters, the roof of the Millennium Dome and intelligent prosthetic limbs. In 2017 the Award was won by the team behind the Raspberry Pi microcomputer.

Originally founded by the MacRobert Trust, the Award is now presented and run by the Royal Academy of Engineering, with support from the Worshipful Company of Engineers.

The closing date for entries is 31 January 2018. Click here for more details on how to apply.
