The Young Innovator Prize is developed and delivered in conjunction with a number of partners and institutions.

Would like to thank the following institutions who have helped launch, support and establish the Young Innovator Prize:




Millennium Point is the destination to experience science, technology and learning and is a great place to experience the future. Located in Birmingham City Centre's Knowledge Quarter, Millennium Point is home to Thinktank - the city's science museum, faculties of Birmingham City University and Birmingham Metropolitan College. Alongside this, Millennium Point has gained a reputation as an exciting and dynamic venue for exhibitions, events and cultural activity.

As a highly-regarded institution within Birmingham, Millennium Point takes its role as a catalyst for ideas and thinking very seriously. Birmingham has the youngest population of any European city and with two universities, secondary schools and colleges on its doorstep; the Knowledge Quarter has become a visible representation and focal point for the next generation.

Through its charitable objectives and partnerships working, the Trust works closely with other organisations to ensure that this next generation has the opportunities to discover, learn and explore the world around them.


With around 22,000 students from 80 countries, Birmingham City University is a large, diverse and increasingly popular place to study.  It puts students at the heart of everything it does - providing them with opportunities and equipping them for future success and the chance to shape the world.

The University has an enviable reputation for providing quality, student-focused education in a professional and friendly environment.  Its superb courses, state-of-the-art facilities, first-rate staff and focus on practical and professional relevance produce some of the country's most employable graduates.

Located on the City Centre Campus in Millennium Point and comprising four schools, CEBE's vision is to create a powerful centre of technological excellence and innovation, to educate to the highest quality in technologies and engineering and provide students with the technical skills to contribute to the workplace as well as to the wider industry. It has close links to industry and allows students to become involved in the latest research or make a real contribution to business.
