Irish Times Innovation Awards Finalists
A Ward Automation vaccine production machine has been selected for the final of the Irish Times Innovation Awards!
“As innovation is at the core of everything that we do, we are honoured to be among the leading technology companies shortlisted at the Irish Times Innovation Awards” said Managing director John Ward “I am so thrilled and proud of our team who continue to push the boundaries of innovative automation.”
The vaccine production machine designed and built by our team in Sligo for a leading pharmaceutical client was chosen as a finalist in the category manufacturing and design. The other finalists in this category are Cyc-Lok, which makes bike parking lockers, and healthcare group MedScan3D.
Now in its 11th year, the awards are a key part of The Irish Times innovation coverage, which seeks to profile and promote successful business innovation across Ireland’s start-ups, SMEs and larger businesses.
The awards offer a platform for public and private sector organisations that are operating in Ireland to showcase their services, product or operational innovations.
There will be seven prizes presented at the awards ceremony: a winner from each of the five categories, a social innovation award (presented to the finalist whose project has made the greatest impact in terms of social enterprise) as well as the overall Innovation of the Year prize.
Sponsors of the awards include the UCD Michael Smurfit School, Science Foundation Ireland, Enterprise Ireland, and Skillnet Ireland.
