In 2022 the Award took viewers on a journey through the world of inventing, casting a spotlight on the ideas and the individuals shaping a brighter future. The finalists included a professional musician whose new career hits all the right notes, clinicians combatting cancer, the robotics expert whose patients are taking a critical step towards healthier lives, young inventors helping us achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals, and a Lifetime Achievement laurate whose work may have saved millions of lives. You can re-live the moment, enter the world of inventing once more and watch the recording.
