International Innovation & Research Awards

The CIOB International Innovation & Research Awards were introduced to celebrate achievement across the built environment, from academic research to industry innovation. These awards were run by the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) until 2016.

Innovation is at the heart of what we do at the CIOB, whether it’s driving up standards, improving efficiency or helping our members achieve new levels of sustainability. We like to be challenged. We know that continually improving how we do things is vital to the health of our sector.

The awards played a role in bringing together practitioners, education and training providers and policy makers. This interaction helped to develop, promote and implement new ideas and methods, enabling entrants to be on the forefront of excellence and innovative working.

The focus of these Awards was to highlight the importance of innovation and research in raising performance levels, enhancing best practice and improving the quality of the built environment. But also, its aim was to encourage the brightest industry newcomers, the recent graduates and postgraduates who could lead on innovation in the future.
