Why take part?
Many of the most successful companies in the industry have been honoured with the ONS Innovation Award for their new products and solutions. ONS has given them the chance to show off their innovative projects to the global energy industry. A number of companies in their early stages gained important publicity with the award – and have since evolved into huge successes.
Now the big question is who will win the ONS Innovation Awards in 2016. Let the competition begin!
Strong focus on technology at ONS
The ONS Innovation Awards reflect our long-standing commitment to presenting and promoting innovative ideas to the international oil, gas and energy industry.
Companies exhibiting at ONS have consistently demonstrated that nothing is impossible. Technological progress continues to break new barriers, and ONS is proud to be a key venue for presenting this progress.
The ONS Innovation Awards are an important part of ONS. The high number of applications for these awards bears witness to the potential prestige for the winning enterprises. For ONS 2014 more than 100 entries from small and large companies were evaluated by the international Innovation Jury.
