In honour of our recent Institute of Physics (IOP) Business Innovation Award, we were invited to attend an official awards dinner held in London last week. Several representatives from Ossila - including our Managing Director, Dr. James Kingsley, and Chairman, Prof. David Lidzey - travelled to London to spend an evening with esteemed academic & industrial physicists.

The Business Innovation Awards stand out from the crowd because they are the only awards in the UK and Ireland recognising companies that have built success on the innovative application of physics. It was an enjoyable and memorable evening, where several other prestigious awards were presented - including the Isaac Newton Medal/Prize and international bilateral awards. 

Dr. Kingsley said, "It was wonderful to be here this evening amongst the biggest names in the field. To have Ossila's solar cell prototyping platform given recognition in this way is truly an honour and encouragement. This award is a shining testament and tribute to the incredible work of everyone at Ossila Ltd. We would also like to thank our valued customers for their continued support over the years!"
