About this award
Introducing the Research and Development Awards
Corporate Vision is proud to introduce the Research & Development Awards 2021 to its roster of globally recognised awards this year!
The global research and development industry is critical to the evolution of global business. In short, this critical generation of knowledge and new techniques has seen businesses develop way ahead of their competition. This is an essential function for many businesses, that helps launch new offerings or improve existing strategies to help businesses remain competitive and profitable.
Therefore, with the launch of our inaugural Research & Development Awards we seek to commend those who assist in this vital sector, as well as the enterprises who have utilised R&D in their services and demonstrate innovation and outstanding levels of service.
Each nominee in the Research & Development Awards will be assessed based on their merits by our in-house panel of judges. The Corporate Vision team gather information independently from a variety of publicly accessible sources which are assessed alongside any material supplied by a nominating party or the nominee themselves. Final judgement is cast based on various criteria such as: business performance, longevity, business growth (either sustained or rapid) and any significant innovations or feedback.
Should you like to be included in the Research & Development Awards 2021 or know of a business or individual deserving of a place on the shortlist, please submit a nomination using the voting form below.
