Liverpool 5G win ‘Tech for Good’ award

Liverpool 5G Create have won the ‘Tech for Good’ award at the 2021 Prolific North Tech Awards.

There was strong competition in this category, which included nominations for FreelanceHER 100 & Pawprint Eco Companion, but on the night the Liverpool 5G project, which tackles the digital divide and reduces digital poverty, took the top spot.

Project Co-ordinator Bekah West, who accepted the award along with Project Lead Ann Williams, said “The Tech for Good award is a fantastic award to win. At its core, this project is about helping people, reducing digital poverty and democratising health, social care and education. We’re delighted that this has been recognised by Prolific North, and it was a privilege to accept this award on behalf of our diverse and talented team”.

The award ceremony was fittingly held at Manchester’s Science & Industry Museum on 21st October. The full list of winners is available here.
