The James Dyson Award is an international design award that celebrates, encourages and inspires the next generation of design engineers. The Award is open to current and recent design engineering students. It’s run by the James Dyson Foundation, James Dyson’s charitable trust, as part of its mission to get young people excited about design engineering.
The James Dyson Foundation has recently opened its 2016 international student design competition, for products or concepts which solve tangible problems.
Students and recent graduates of design or engineering are invited to enter inventions that do more with less, designed with the environment in mind. Submitted projects should have a significant and practical purpose, and have the potential to be commercially viable.
