Next Generation Award
Autocar-Courland Next Generation Award
The Autocar-Courland Next Generation Award was launched in 2009 by Autocar in partnership with Courland International and the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders, and was created to highlight the ingenuity, potential and sheer brainpower of UK-based students. Eight years on, it's now widely regarded as the leading competition of its type.
The Next Generation Award is backed by Honda, Jaguar Land Rover, McLaren Automotive, Nissan, Peugeot and Toyota. You are invited to come up with an idea that you believe will provide a worthwhile benefit to the UK automotive business.
A team of industry judges will assess the students’ ideas based on Mobility, Connectivity, Sustainability, Customer Experience and Marketing & Communications, with the winner receiving £9,000 plus a six month work experience placement shared between the award sponsors.
Previous winners and finalists have all found industry positions.
