Design Reality is thrilled to be amongst the prestigious businesses and individuals shortlisted in the 2022 Wales STEM Awards.
The St Asaph based company is one of just a few innovative companies to be named finalists in this year’s highly anticipated awards – which celebrate those making a difference to the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Maths (STEM) in Wales.
The Wales STEM awards cover a range of different categories, celebrating businesses making an impact on the Welsh economy, the STEM diversity gap, the STEM skills shortage and those inspiring the next generation of scientists.
Design Reality has been shortlisted in two categories for our ground-breaking work on our fully reusable 2-way filtering half mask respirator design.
The Innovation in STEM award celebrates companies that are leading the way in the field, creating products, systems and processes that push the boundaries with a clear commitment to developing the industry.
The STEM Sustainability award recognises companies that hold sustainability at the core of their activities. Striving for a better tomorrow, today.
We’ve been put forward as a finalist in this category for our game-changing approach to respiratory protection with our 2way filtering reusable respirator design
We’ve again been put forward for our UK made respirator. Not only does it have a minimal carbon footprint in production, but it is a fully reusable and recyclable alternative to traditional single-use disposable respirators.
All finalists across the 12 categories will now be considered by an industry-leading panel of judges, with the winners being announced at the awards ceremony at the Mercure Cardiff Holland House Hotel on 27th October 2022.
Dr Louise Bright, head of judges and founder of Wales Women in STEM Network, said: “The Wales STEM Awards do such an important job recognising and celebrating the achievements of organisations and individuals working in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths in Wales. This year, just like the first Wales STEM Awards, I’ve been privileged to read about the inspiring work happening around the country. I am looking forward to meeting the nominees and learning more about them and unlike our inaugural year, celebrating their success in person at the awards ceremony in October.”
