IMechE Award for Risk Reduction in Mechanical Engineering
Recognises any eminent engineer who has contributed most in the understanding and/or reduction of risk in any area of mechanical engineering.
This may include reducing dangerous dust arising from mining and industrial tunneling during the removal of rock from the surface or under-ground as in the original bequest, but now could also be for any other aspect of reducing risk to health through the application of improved mechanical engineering.
Open to Institution members of all grades as well as non-members.
Value of award
- £1,500 plus certificate to the lead author, certificate(s) to co-author(s).
Closing date: 31 March 2021.
- Self nomination and third party nominations are permitted.
- Submit the completed nomination form and any other supporting documents to:
