The Major Project Award for Sustainability recognises the contribution of a team of up to five engineers, based in the UK, who have delivered an engineering project that has had a major impact on the goal towards a more sustainable society. The project can come from any branch of engineering.
For this award, a major project is considered to be one which has had a demonstrable impact on society and sustainability, and does not refer solely to the overall duration, complexity, or value of the project.
The recipient(s) of the Major Project Award for Sustainability will be selected by the Royal Academy of Engineering's Awards Committee. The Award will consist of a medal and will be awarded annually. The prize will not be awarded if in any year the Academy so decides.
Nominations can be submitted by anyone who would like to highlight contributions to engineering excellence.
Nominations must include the following information:
- Details of the project and the nominee(s).
- Citation of not more than 500 words describing the project and its major impact on society and sustainability.
- CVs of no more than one page for all nominee(s) should be attached
- Letters of support from two referees. At least one of the referees should be from outside the nominee's organisation. The nominator should not be one of the referees.
Self-nominations are not accepted, however, if you are interested in this award but do not know of anyone to nominate you, please contact the Academy.
Only completed nominations will be considered. Please ensure that the nomination form is complete with CVs and letters of support at the time of submission.
Each nominator can submit up to three nominations for the Award in any year.
Submissions must be made via the Academy’s Grant Management System by no later than 5pm on Monday 5 February 2024.
The Academy is committed to diversity and welcomes nominators and nominees from women and other groups who are currently under-represented across engineering, as well as recognising the full breadth of engineering.
