The Royal Institution of Naval Architects (RINA) & QinetiQ are introducing a new international Award, which aims to both recognise and encourage scientific and technological innovation in the maritime industry.

Innovation is a key to success in all sectors of the maritime industry and the research carried out by engineers and scientists in universities and industry can be critical to pushing forward the boundaries of design, construction and operation of marine vessels and structures.

The Royal Institution of Naval Architects and QinetiQ are jointly launching a new award scheme to acknowledge outstanding scientific or technological research in the areas of hydrodynamics, propulsion, structures and material. The award will recognise innovations that offer the potential to make significant improvements in the design, construction and operation of marine vessels and structures. 

The Award of £1,000 will be made annually to either an individual or an organisation, in any country.  Nominations for the Award may be made by any member of the global maritime community, and will be judged by a panel of members of the Institution and QinetiQ.  The Award will be announced at the Institution’s Annual Dinner.

Nominations are now invited for the 2013 Maritime Innovation Award.  Individuals may not nominate themselves, although employees may nominate their company or organisation. They may be up to 750 words and should describe the research and its potential contribution to improving the design, construction and operation of maritime vessels and structures.

Nominations may be forwarded online at: www.rina.org.uk/MaritimeInnovationAward or by email to: MaritimeInnovationAward@rina.org.uk  to arrive by 31 Dec 2013.
