Queen Elizabeth Prize for Engineering
From the creation of new materials to make the clothes of the future to the development of clean, green sources of power – engineering underpins almost every detail of modern life. This is the real story of twenty-first century engineering. This is what the Queen Elizabeth Prize for Engineering celebrates.
The new global £1M prize will recognise world-changing advances in engineering that have made a difference to humanity.
As we search for the winner, we will discover and celebrate the untold stories of engineering success and the people behind them. And we will inspire a new generation of engineers to take up the challenges of the future.
We have already started our international search. The first winner will be announced in spring 2013.
