ICW Collaborative Working Awards 2015
Thursday 26 November 2015
House of Lords, London
Sponsored by BSI
2015 marked the 25th Anniversary of the ICW community. During this time the germ of an idea grew from strength to strength, and as an Institute we witnessed many examples of collaborative excellence. These have included individual organisations that have been pathfinders for industry, collaborative relationships where partners have fully realised the benefits of working together, and individuals who have been innovators and evangelists for collaboration. To recognise and acknowledge these achievements and outstanding performances we launched, as part of our 25th anniversary, our Collaborative Awards Programme as an annual event in which we can all celebrate excellence. We are delighted that the British Standards Institution, which has been working alongside the Institute since 2005, jointly sponsored the Awards Programme with the Institute and provided practical support. The winning submissions were presented at the House of Lords on the evening of the 26th November 2015.
Given the wide range of organisations and varied applications for collaborative approaches we identified seven categories.
- Collaborative Pathfinder Award

- Small and Medium Enterprise
