Mark Sullivan, BMT’s Operations & Capability Director, has joined the panel of judges for this year’s E&T (Engineering and Technology) Innovation Awards.
Previously known as the IET (Institution of Engineering and Technology) Innovation Awards, the E&T Awards is the ultimate celebration of the people, projects and organisations that are revolutionising our world through excellence in engineering and technology.
Mark will be judging the Research and Development (R&D) category and said:
"I am delighted to be part of the highly skilled judging panel. R&D and innovation at BMT has been recognised as a powerful engine for promoting engineering solutions and developing strategies to address the ideas of tomorrow. I was hugely impressed with the quality and range of entries from last year’s awards and although it will be a different experience to be a virtual judge, I cannot wait to see what the breadth of talent will bring to the 2020 E&T Innovation Awards."
After 29 years of service in the Royal Navy, Mark joined BMT in 2012. He was appointed Operations & Capability Director in September last year, following roles with the Ministry of Defence (MOD) and in the private sector. Mark now handles the technical delivery to time, cost and quality for more than 500 multi-disciplinary engineers and runs both BMT’s research and development portfolio and our innovation framework.
According to the awards, the judges will assess each entry on five criteria:
After drawing up a shortlist, the judges will choose the winners from the competition's sixteen categories and announce them at the end of September.
