FWIC always has a rich number of companies and presenters and new ideas, and is the culmination of a huge amount of work from a large number of people.

Innovation Showcase Awards
The Innovation Showcase, sponsored by Intel has been space to see, touch and feel innovation at work. It is an interactive exhibition filled with start-ups and partners demonstrating the value of prototyping, collaboration & data. Some of the teams have been working together over the past 6 weeks to improve their proposition through collaboration and by accessing new data sources. We have had several groups working together on issues such as animal wellbeing, distributed cloud computing and managing mental health. This year Innovation Showcase committee wanted to highlight the work done by the start-up companies in the form of three Innovation Showcase awards:
