How to enter
The tt100 programme starts with a Call for Entries and culminates in an Awards ceremony held towards the end of the year. In between, there are a number of key steps for participating companies and the adjudicators. Here’s an overview of the process.
Entries opened on 26 February 2021
Entries closing 30 September 2021.
Entries opened on February 2021. Entries have been extended into September 2021.
We take the evaluation of your work seriously and it’s essential to provide your submission completely and on time.
A detailed assessment is then conducted. If accepted, companies are notified and required to make a pledge in the form of a tax-deductible donation towards the establishment of the tt100 Research Fund.
On proof of payment, entrants are given a link to the tt100 questionnaire. This is an invaluable exercise as it takes you through the journey of how you Manage Innovation, Technology, People, and Systemic Thinking.
When the questionnaire has been completed, each successful entrant presents a submission to a panel of adjudicators. This usually happens during the second half of the year and is either a face-to-face session or, if this is not practical, conducted via video conference.
The panel of adjudicators select qualifying, finalist and winning organisations, which are announced at the awards function presided over by, the Minister of Science and Technology.
