The HELOA Innovation awards were started in 2011 and recognise some of the excellent work that is taking place every day amongst our membership.

The winners of the 2016 awards were the University of Derby for their innovative ‘Ram Jam’ campaign. Further information can be found on our Innovation Awards pages.

The HELOA Group Spotlight awards are a new addition for this year and look to highlight the great work which happens within our regional groups.
