5. Brief Description of Innovation Nominated for this Award and the benefits it delivers:
Innovation can be described simply as something that is either new to the adopter or that changes the adopter’s circumstances and/or behaviour – and it may be a combination of all three. Please frame your description using this framework as guidance. (Attach additional pages if necessary - marked as Annexe A)

6. Evidence of Commercial Success or Demonstrated Market Potential:
'Commercial Success': – have you developed a new and innovative product or service, and then sold it recently to a launch customer? If so, then you meet this criterion.
'Demonstrated Market Potential': You may have a product or service ready for the market that hasn’t yet achieved a sale; newness of the innovation is not a problem if you satisfy the other two criteria, have a Technology Readiness Level (TRL) of around 7 or, ideally, 8 (System Qualified Through Test and Demonstration) and can show a reasoned plan, based on a quantified estimate of market demand and a well thought-out roadmap to bring your innovation to market.

(Please note Paragraphs 2.2 and 2.3 of the Eligibility Criteria for this award. If any or all of this information is Confidential for any reason, please indicate here and contact the Executive Manager Innovation and Industry Engagement directly for further instructions)

8. Evidence of Originality and Innovation:
Measures of originality and innovation are simple: if nobody has thought of it before, then it’s original. It’s innovative if it allows the user to change and improve his or her processes and procedures and achieve a superior outcome – the greater the change, the better the outcome, the greater the impact of the innovation.
