The Royal Academy of Engineering MacRobert Award, which celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2019, is the UK’s longest running and most prestigious prize for engineering innovation. It recognises outstanding engineering innovation combined with proven commercial success and tangible social benefit. Winners receive a £50,000 cash prize, gold medal and national acclaim.
