“Today we are proud to release the Top 20 inventions submitted to the global James Dyson Award competition, chosen by a panel of Dyson engineers,” says Dyson’s Global Director of Sustainability and James Dyson Award Top 20 judge, Tom Crawford.
"I’ve had the privilege of being on the Top 20 judging panel over the past 2 years and have been inspired by the exciting future these young inventors are creating for us. This year’s panel of 12 judges were based across our research labs in the UK, Malaysia and Singapore and are part of design, engineering and manufacturing teams working on the future of Dyson technologies.
With the introduction of the new Sustainability Winner this year, it is fantastic that we can also recognise inventions that have been carefully designed to protect our planet’s future. This year we’ve seen a new way to care for local bees in Ireland, a better use of our Earth’s materials for ceramic production in India, and a new application to generate renewable energy in the Philippines. What we see from the Top 20 shortlist is that this is not just a list. It holds future ideas, improvements and processes to help improve life as we know it. This year has brought massive challenges and if one thing is certain, our Top 20 James Dyson Award inventors have shown that young minds and their unfiltered curiosity need a seat at the table.” Tom Crawford, Global Director of Sustainability at Dyson.
