Finalists: Best Innovation – MRS Awards 2018

1st October 2018

Acumen have been shortlisted in the Best Innovation category at the 2018 MRS Awards.

The prestigious award will be judged in front of a "Dragon's Den" style panel before the awards are announced at the MRS Awards Ceremony on Monday 3rd of December.

Acumen have been shortlisted for the groundbreaking work they did on the joint BBC & BT project for a new prototype technology that they have been developing in partnership. The research that Acumen conducted was instrumental in assisting the development teams in the new features and services of their prototype, before taking it to the next phase of development and trials.

Speaking of the work with Acumen, Doug Williams, Project Director at BT Sport, said:

"Acumen played a critical role in allowing us to assess the features and interaction design in our prototype service and worked with us to ensure their market researchers could support our evaluators in what was, at the time of the test, a very technical set up. Following the trials that Acumen conducted, Jamie Hindhaugh, the COO of BT Sport is now publicly promoting our prototype as ‘the next big initiative’ that will help in BT’s quest to allow their viewers to get to the heart of sport."

Winners will be announced on the 3rd of December - everyone at Acumen will be keeping everything crossed until then!
