Northern Ireland Area Innovation Awards

The Institute of Water Northern Ireland Area Innovation Awards


The Institute of Water provides a stage on which to recognise Innovation in the UK Water and Sewerage sector.


The Innovation Awards highlight to the many innovative individuals and companies within the Water Sector to demonstrate their excellence and their commitment to future enhancement of the industry. The Awards are also a part of the commitment the Institute of Water is making to promote the right cultural environment and encourage pride in the sector.


Each year, each Area of the IWater holds a regional innovation competition and the finalists from each are short-listed for the National Award. The Award is presented at the National President’s Dinner & Awards evening during a prestigious ceremony where Water Sector experts from across the UK gather together to celebrate industry innovation.
