Introduction

A celebration of Scottish Innovation

Back for its fifth year, the Business Insider Made in Scotland Awards in partnership with the University of Strathclyde's Advanced Forming Research Centre champions all aspects of transformational discoveries and developments made in Scotland.

In an ever more crowded marketplace organisations must introduce new products and processes to stand out.

Scottish Business Insider invites innovative companies and individuals that have found success both domestically and internationally to enter the Made in Scotland Awards and have their contribution recognised.

Join us for a champagne reception, exhibition of innovative products and services and 3-course meal as we celebrate Scottish innovation.

Thursday 14th May 2020
