“To create and coordinate the biggest and best R&D department in the world”

BIS 2001 - 2013

The First BIS event took place at London's Barbican Center in 2001.

The British Inventors Society (BIS) was formed in December 2003. The team that came together includes leading inventors and innovators, academics and entrepreneurs who share a common belief – that invention is the vital spark that drives the world’s technology and new orders of wealth creation.

The BIS Society is responsible for organising the annual international competition, the British Invention of the Year and the World Invention awards.

              Forthcoming Innovation Exhibitions

During 2012 BIS attended a number of UK & international innovation exhibitions. You are invited to join the BIS delegations in 2013.
