Innovation Award

The Wales Quality Centre has a mission is to celebrate Innovation in Wales and promote and encourage innovation in every sector of the Welsh economy. The Centre has been campaigning through the Wales Innovation Award to raise the profile of innovation in Wales. The Award recognises the achievements of innovative Welsh businesses and their continuing efforts. We invite Welsh organisations across all business sectors including third sector, to tell us about the products, processes and improvements in their business which have been innovative. We ask them:
  • What was the reason behind the innovation
  • To describe the innovation process
  • What was the “difference” and how could they demonstrate that?
  • And finally, where there has been market exposure, how successful has the innovation it been
The Award process requires organisations to show:
  • An overview of the innovation
  • Development Processes
  • Differentiation
  • Impact
The Innovation can cover any aspect of the business which might include:
  • Product Innovation
  • Process and/or Service Innovation
  • People Innovation
All entrants are "Recognised for Innovation" and where possible used as case studies for others to learn from. The most successful entrants are awarded Highly Commended and Commended certificates and the overall winner will win the accolade of Wales Innovation Award Overall Winner for that year. All entrants will have demonstrated that they are open to developing an innovation programme within their organisations, and by doing so will incorporate this into their ongoing improvement plan.

If you think your organisation should be recognised as a Welsh Innovator we would like to hear from you, we will arrange a visit and explain the Award process in more detail.
