About the event
Diverse, multifaceted, and continually evolving, engineering creates the solutions to global challenges and improves billions of lives. Engineers have enabled us to work together across the planet, explore the smallest cells and the most distant stars, and navigate our way through the world.
Awarded every two years, the Queen Elizabeth Prize for Engineering (QEPrize) champions bold, ground-breaking engineering innovation which is of global benefit to humanity. The £1 million prize celebrates engineering’s visionaries, inspiring young minds to consider engineering as a career choice and to help to solve the challenges of the future. The prize also encourages engineers to help extend the boundaries of what is possible across all disciplines and applications.
