National Manufacturing Institute Scotland

Entries now open for showpiece celebration of Scottish innovation

The National Manufacturing Institute Scotland (NMIS) – operated by the University of Strathclyde - is delighted to partner with Business Insider to celebrate the Scottish manufacturing community at the Business Insider Made in Scotland Awards 2022 – with entries now open.

Back for its sixth year, the Business Insider Made in Scotland Awards champions all aspects of transformational discoveries and developments in Scotland. From young innovator of the year to best new product, the event will spotlight the outstanding work across the past twelve months as the manufacturing community has shifted to overcome the ever-evolving challenges associated with the pandemic, Brexit and the drive towards a net-zero economy

This year's showpiece occasion will take place on 16 May at Glasgow Science Centre, with NMIS returning once again as title sponsor. Following last year's virtual event, this year is expected to be attended by over 250 people. NMIS directly sponsors two individual awards - manufacturer of the year and the signature Made in Scotland award, recognising the outstanding overall entry.

Innovative companies and individuals who have found success domestically and internationally are invited to enter to have their contribution recognised. The full list of categories can be viewed here.

Last year's winners included Bellrock Technology, Tier Two Members of the University of Strathclyde’s Advancing Forming Research Centre (AFRC) – part of the NMIS Group.

Sarah Jardine, Chief Operating Officer, NMIS, said:

The National Manufacturing Institute Scotland team is delighted to be the title sponsor of this year's Made in Scotland awards. The awards give everyone in the Scottish manufacturing community an opportunity to celebrate the truly impactful and innovative work done by companies of all sizes from across the manufacturing supply chain.

"This past year has presented people and businesses in manufacturing with a number of challenges, but those challenges have also brought about opportunities that have enabled companies to prosper and it's wonderful that we get to recognise those that are helping make Scotland, once again, a global leader in advanced manufacturing.

"Through the University of Strathclyde's Advanced Forming Research Centre, our foundation specialist technology centre, we have been part of this celebration of Scottish manufacturing for five years and it's inspiring to see companies each year become more competitive, tackle the biggest manufacturing challenges, and cement their place, not only in the Scottish manufacturing landscape but also globally.
