The Queen Elizabeth Prize for Engineering

Brockley Nick here. Shameless plug for one of my clients today. The Queen Elizabeth Prize for Engineering is a new global £1 million prize, which will be awarded to the individual or team responsible for the most significant engineering achievement in the world. Nominations open today, via the website.

As I write, Professor Brian Cox and Dr Eleanor Stride are seducing the nation into pursuing a career in engineering from the BBC Breakfast sofa (we need to produce another 2 million of them to remain competitive) while Lord Browne is delivering a similar message on the Today Programme. You can read the BBC report here too.

It's a long shot that Brockley will produce the winner, but most of the BC readers we've encountered (the ones who don't work in marketing and the media) seem to be engineering consultants. You never know.
