The JLR Innovista Awards returns for the sixth year and will be open for entries from 6 August - 11 October 2018. The awards recognise and reward innovative contributions from every area of our business, championing the innovations that create better experiences for both our customers, and ourselves.
Shortlisted teams will be invited to compete at the JLR Innovista event in February 2019 for the chance to win their category and receive an award. As well as benefiting from increased profile within JLR, all submitted projects have the opportunity to compete in the group-wide Tata Innovista Awards, meaning each entry has multiple chances of winning. The categories are -
Implemented Innovations - These awards are for innovations which were implemented successfully and have achieved results that can be demonstrated.
Dare To Try - Not all innovations will end in success. The DTT award recognises the most audacious, sincere and wholehearted attempts at innovation, where there was risk and the team displayed strong resolve to succeed, but could not achieve the desired results.
Piloted Technologies - This award recognises global or industry first technologies that have been developed and tested successfully, but are yet to be implemented. The technology holds promise to deliver noteworthy innovations.
Design Honour - Design is an important activity that translates the functional and aesthetic aspects of a product or service into something that delivers a great user experience. No design, no matter how beautiful and ingenious, is any good if it does not fulfil a user need and better user experience.
Colleagues can also enter to compete for the Rising Star Award which focuses on individuals who drive innovation or are innovative within their roles. It will identify Jaguar Land Rover’s innovators of the future who may not otherwise have a mechanism to showcase what they have done within their functions.
