SeeByte and Heriot-Watt reach finals of Impact Awards

SeeByte Ltd and Heriot-Watt University are a finalist in the Impact Awards in the category of Business Impact Achieved.

The Impact Awards, organised by PraxisUnico, recognise and celebrate the success of collaborative working and the process of transferring knowledge and expertise beyond higher education, charities and public sector research establishments for the wider benefit of society and the economy.

The finalists - nine teams and three individuals -  have been shortlisted from 80 entries. These shortlisted entrants have made outstanding contributions to society and the economy through innovation.

These fledgling companies and collaborations range from programmes that support companies engaging with the academic research base across Scotland's higher education and research institutes, to a business that promises to revolutionise the solar power industry.

The SeeByte Ltd and Heriot-Watt collaboration was recognised for its work on autonomous inspection of subsea cables and pipelines.
