Tech & Innovation Award
The Tech & Innovation Award will be presented to a company that has innovated through the use of new technologies.
Companies of all sizes and in any sector are encouraged to apply, so long as they are champions of innovation as well as advocates of technology and new talent in France and the UK. Examples below demonstrate the kind of innovations that the Commercial Section of the British Embassy in Paris and the Franco-British Chamber are looking for:
- Streamlining an inefficient process through technology or innovation
- Launching a new tech product that has revolutionised a marketplace – a game-changer
- Conducting excellent R&D that has advanced Franco-British technological capabilities
Tech & Innovation can cover a number of sectors or product areas: Financial & Professional Services, Agri-tech, FinTech, Smart Cities, 5G technology, artificial intelligence, big data, concepts to support our ageing society – we are open to suggestions!
The technology or innovation should have been implemented in the last three years; it needs a Franco-British component, either through trade, investment or R&D collaboration.
Companies need to showcase the significant difference the innovation has made to their operations – even better if it has boosted their exports or investment into France or the UK.
