News: Innovative Rotherham firms urged to enter regional awards


Yorkshire Forward are inviting innovative local companies to enter their Innovator/09 Awards. The second Yorkshire and Humber Innovation Awards, has been established by Yorkshire Forward, together with key regional and national supporters, to celebrate and reward the amazing innovation and creativity that is ripe in the region's businesses and universities. Categories include Innovative Young Company, the Knowledge Exploitation Award, the Product, Process, Service Award and the International Innovation Award. Winners will receive a cash prize of £3000, to spend on developing innovation within their organisation through training, services or products that will enable their business to further enhance their innovative progress. Jim Farmery, Assistant Director of Business for Yorkshire Forward comments: "Yorkshire and Humber has a history of changing markets from a number of our traditional industries and is diverse and resilient as a result. "We know that to remain competitive in the current economic climate companies need to stay ahead of the game and innovation is key to this. It's more important than ever therefore that we reward companies and individuals for their dedication to innovation in their work - whether this is alone or in partnership. "Research and development and the pursuit of innovative practice in business can fall by the wayside when, like now, businesses and investors are tightening their belts. These awards demonstrate the benefits of developing new ideas, technologies and ways of working in the region through real and successful examples."
