What is Innovation?

Innovation is the category with one of the widest scopes within the Excellence Rankings as it looks at novel new approaches in every area, from the fruits of research and development to novel new business practices. What all the ranked entities have in common is the demonstration of new concepts not just within their own business but in the sector as a whole.

The category includes any projects that demonstrate an innovative approach to the market. The category crosses over with many of our other categories and can include new products, novel product features, new business practices, new marketing and sales strategies and more.


As with many other categories, AI has been a major driving force for innovation in the field of clinical trials, with companies using AI as a tool for trial optimisation, trial recruitment and trial decentralisation.

One of the newest developments during this research period has been the use of AI in the process of drug development with Excientia’s AI designed immuno-oncology molecule as one such example.

In terms of medical fields oncology and heart disease remain the most active areas when it comes to innovative developments.
