The James Dyson Award 2020 | International winner and sustainability winner announced This week, we celebrate the two global winners of the James Dyson Award. A new at-home breast cancer screening device and an upcycled material that generates renewable energy from UV light. Read about the worthy winners on The James Dyson Award site.
The James Dyson Award 2020 Dyson engineers have narrowed down the search to the 20 very best entrants. These will now be reviewed in detail by engineer and inventor James Dyson, who will hand-pick the winner, the sustainability winner and up to two runners-up. Check back on 19th November for details of the winning inventions!
At the end of last week we celebrated the National winners of the James Dyson Award 2020. From a glucometer powered by breath to a sustainable way to keep food fresh, engineering and design students worldwide are tackling global issues head-on. See the full list of national winners on the Dyson Newsroom below:
Entries for The James Dyson Award are now closed and the first round of judging is currently underway. We'll be announcing the National Winners and Runners-up on 17th September. Long standing James Dyson Award judge Peter Gammack reveals what makes an award-winning invention and what he hopes to see from the entrants this year. Read more in The Dyson Newsroom below
This International Women in Engineering Day, we spoke to four previous winners of the James Dyson Award about their inventions, goals and advice for future engineering enthusiasts helping to Shape The World. New air cooling technology, a sanitising pen, a marine bioplastic and a tactile food label, these women are tackling global issues head-on. Learn more about their drive to push engineering and design boundaries exclusively on the Dyson Newsroom.
We never normally show our aborted projects, however, it felt right to give a glimpse of the Dyson car to show what the team achieved. Read and see more from James Dyson about the project here
The Breathe London study, which used Dyson’s bespoke air quality backpack to measure the air quality on children’s journey to and from school, has been selected as a finalist for the Experimental category. Read more in our Dyson Newsroom below.
Dyson and TTP have worked together to develop an entirely new design of ventilator in record time for the clinical needs of Covid-19 patients. The project has brought together engineers, scientists, medical device designers, clinical testing and high technology manufacturing knowledge to achieve the NHS specification.
Dyson engineers have been applying their minds to engineer an entirely new ventilator, the CoVent™ which is designed to address the specific clinical needs of Covid-19 patients. The UK Government has placed an order for 10,000 ventilators from Dyson and we’re donating 5,000 units to the international cause – all our effort is focused on manufacturing these as soon as possible. Thanks to our incredible Dyson engineers, and those at TTP plc, who are working around the clock.
On Monday 9th March, Dyson proudly sponsored the Sustainability Award at the STEM for Britain Awards, an annual competition that supports and promotes Britain’s early-career researchers in Science, Engineering, Technology and Mathematics (STEM).
