Protecting Society & Saving Lives

The Protecting Society & Saving Lives category has been designed to recognise the inherently innovative activity of emergency services, sailors, soldiers, aircrew and marines from around the world.

Trained to operate across the spectrum from cutting edge technology to complete technological isolation, the Armed Forces & Emergency Services routinely develop innovative solutions generated by this novel challenge space.

This category seeks to recognise an individual, a team or a collaboration within the armed forces or emergency services, who has developed an innovative concept or delivered an innovative product that has had the greatest impact in enhancing operational capability, improving conditions for personnel or increasing environmental sustainability of operations.

The judging panel is especially interested to receive entries that include collaboration across governments, academia or industry.

Please consider how you can demonstrate the benefits of your innovation in your entry form.  A shortlist and winner will be selected by our judging panel.
