The QEPrize is looking for nominations from the general public that honour a wide range of engineering advances across all areas of the profession. Additionally, the QEPrize is looking for a diverse pool of nominators from all parts of the world. The £500,000 prize is the most prestigious engineering distinction that can be won anywhere in the globe. It is given to up to 10 engineers who are responsible for a daring, ground-breaking engineering breakthrough that is of benefit to humanity on a worldwide scale.
This year is significant since it commemorates the 10th anniversary of the first QEPrize being given out. Twenty of the world’s most accomplished engineers, whose work has improved the quality of life for billions of people, have been recognised here during the previous decade. As we get closer to this significant year, we are looking for a wide variety of nominees that genuinely exemplify brilliance in engineering. If you know of someone that fits this description, please send them our way. Because the QEPrize is a global prize, nominations can come from any country in the world. The only restrictions are that nominations cannot be made by the nominee themselves, nor can they be made posthumously.
