We are pleased to announce that following on from 2016’s highly successful ceremony at the Metropole Hotel in Leeds, the RISE awards are back for another year highlighting and rewarding the most pioneering initiatives in Research, Innovation, Sustainability and Enterprise. Hosted by Leeds Sustainability Institute at Leeds Beckett University we are inviting applications now for new and innovative products, technologies, processes, projects and schemes. If it challenges the status quo, we want to hear about it!

Across the built environment, talented groups and individuals are shaping the future of construction through extensive innovation, research and development. Our awards have been devised to recognise that contribution; bringing together academic, industry, third sector and community groups together in a unique celebration of all those who are helping to change the way we build for the future. Celebrating diversity and the unique skills, knowledge and perspectives different groups bring to the field is at the heart of the RISE awards.

Completely FREE to enter, submissions are encouraged across 14 different categories. With awards for industry leaders in energy efficiency, BIM, social value, research and more up for grabs we are sure there is a category for you! Previous winners have come from a vast array of environments, specialisms, companies and backgrounds – what matters to us is that entrants display the passion and dedication to do things better, pushing our industry forward and driving up standards.

The closing date for all entries is Tuesday 29th August 2017 with the winners being revealed on 14th September at a prestigious gala presentation evening at the Marriott Hotel in Leeds.

The evening itself will be the perfect opportunity for you to showcase your initiative amongst your peers, maximising your exposure and bringing your expertise to a new audience. Our vision is that as well as celebrating achievement, the RISE awards will be a breeding ground for future successful industry, academic and third sector collaborations. There will be plenty of opportunities for entrants to have ongoing engagement with Leeds Sustainability Institute and the wider University community beyond the awards.



All ticket prices include a networking reception with welcome drink, a three course dinner, our awards presentation and entertainment.
