The Franco-British Collaboration award recognised an initiative which saw a French and a British business collaborating to deliver a significant project. In the aftermath of Brexit, this award will celebrate an initiative that contributed to maintaining a close relationship and continuing the collaboration between France and the UK.

We looked for initiatives such as: a French and a British business partnering to deliver a project together, a French organisation contributing significantly to a UK-based project or a UK organisation contributing significantly to a France-based project (for example, as an operator or as a subcontractor), etc. The project must have been completed or be sufficiently advanced to be able to demonstrate the collaborative and significant aspects of the initiative.
