Entries invited for IChemE’s 30th Global Awards

12 February 2024

Widely recognised as the world’s most prestigious chemical engineering awards, entries open on February 12, 2024, for the Institution of Chemical Engineers’ (IChemE) Global Awards. The awards are free to enter and open to both IChemE members and non-members around the world.

Covering the breadth of the chemical and process industries, 2024 marks the Global Awards’ 30th year of celebrating outstanding professional achievement. Championing talent and innovation by people, projects and organisations across all sectors, the Global Awards receives a diverse array of entries, with small teams and multinational organisations both well-represented among the 2023 finalists and winners.

Entries are expertly evaluated by a judging panel of senior IChemE members and industry experts, with societal benefit, sustainability and environmental impact, coupled to engineering and professional excellence, rated highly in the judging criteria.

New Judging Panel Chair, IChemE Fellow Dr Jamie Cleaver, said: “I’m honoured and excited to be heading up the judging panel for the Global Awards. It’s a unique privilege to be part of the team recognising and promoting chemical engineering excellence. The entry process is straightforward and selection as a finalist really puts your successes under the spotlight, so I’d encourage everyone to help us applaud the innovative work of our incredibly talented profession.”
