Innovation Awards 2020: Celebrating innovation in local government highways, street lighting and winter maintenance services
APSE is pleased to present the 2020 Innovation Awards for highways, street lighting and winter maintenance services. These awards celebrate outstanding local councils that use innovative ideas and solutions to tackle the current challenges facing their frontline services. The awards provide participating authorities with an opportunity to showcase their expertise, alongside the results that they have achieved.
The Innovation Awards are split into three categories:
The ideal submission will contain a description of the problem or challenge faced, and the innovative approach taken to remedy it. This could be, for example, a service redesign, new training techniques, use of new materials or equipment, or new methods of responding to/communicating with the public. The submission should also include the outcomes that have been achieved. As a helpful guide, a brochure featuring the successful submissions for the 2017 and 2018 Innovation Awards is available to download.
Member and non-member authorities are welcome to submit an application.
Winners will be announced during the APSE Highways, Street Lighting and Winter Maintenance Seminar 19-20 March 2020, which will be held at the Grand Hotel, Blackpool. Details of the event can be found here.
