Oxford nanoSystems named as one of 2019’s top innovators
Abingdon based Oxford nanoSystems has been announced as a finalist by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) for their 2019 Innovation Awards. The Awards celebrate the most pioneering engineering and technology innovations across 15 sectors, from energy and sustainability to transport and healthcare.
Chosen from over 360 entries, OnS was shortlisted for the Power & Energy award in recognition of the research and development of NanoFLUX, a surface coating technology that dramatically increases heat transfer within two-phase cooling systems. NanoFLUX technology is the solution for high performance and efficient cooling of high density electronic devices such as power amplifiers, advanced processors, GPU’s and laser diodes to run faster, at higher power levels and with higher reliability.
Dr Alex Reip, CEO, is delighted that OnS have been recognized for this award.
Panellist and IET Events Group Manager,
Tanya Spencer, said: “The IET’s distinctive Innovation Awards celebrate the
very best in new innovations in science, engineering and technology from around
the world. Not only do the Awards put them in the spotlight, but play a crucial
role in helping them advance their crucial work.
“All the finalists’ entries have a
game-changing impact on society, improving the way we live and work. We are
immensely proud to recognise, celebrate and show our support for these
exceptional achievements and wish [enter company name] the best of luck at the
OnS will join other finalists in London on 13 November, at a prestigious awards dinner and ceremony. Host for the evening, journalist, presenter and comedian, Alex Brooker, will announce the winners.

Awarded for the creative development and scale-up of novel nano-coatings for energy saving and generation in heat transfer.
Dr Alexander Reip is CEO of Oxford nanoSystems Ltd, a company developing innovative nanocoatings to improve two phase heat transfer with an aim to improve the energy efficiency and reducing CO2 in everyday systems including air conditioning and refrigeration, energy generation and electronics cooling.
Alex came to the company at its foundation in 2012 as CSO. He spent three years developing the company’s innovative nanoFLUX® coating technology, including co-writing its core patent, before being appointed CEO in 2015.
Within this role he has grown the company to over 13 people. He has established relationships with major worldwide manufacturers within heat exchanger technologies, waste heat recovery and electronics-cooling markets, whilst remaining highly involved in the scientific development of the nanoFLUX® process, reducing deposition duration and reliance on market-controlled resource costs.
He started up the company’s placement schemes to give a years’ experience to chemistry and engineering undergraduates and mentors chemistry undergraduates and early stage entrepreneurs. He won the 2018 Entrepreneur of the Year Award from the Oxford Trust and an SME Leadership Award from the Royal Academy of Engineering in 2017
As well as being a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry, he is part of the Institute of Directors “IoD 99” network of young entrepreneurs, member of the EPSRC Early Careers Forum and on the Science panel for the new DfE T-Levels.
The winner’s NanoFlux technology provides a completely new, scientific alternative for manufacturers to improve the efficiency of heat transfer surfaces. What stood out was their bringing together of scientific knowledge and technical knowhow to create an essential product – new or retrofit – that can respond to the carbon neutral challenge 2030/50.
“We are really thrilled and surprised to have won an award which had so many impressive finalists. The Thames Valley area is such a hub for innovative and interesting STEM companies. Climate change is at the forefront of people’s minds and this is one of the driving forces behind us developing nanoFLUX coating technology, which can significantly increase heat transfer. Persistence is a very large part of creating successful technology. You need to have an open mind to be able to see different applications for a given product even if things don’t always look like they are going to work.”
Dr Alex Reip, CEO, Oxford nanoSystems
With many thanks to the organisers and sponsors of the Thames Valley Tech Awards
Oxford nanoSystems are pleased to announce they have been shortlisted for the Barclays Award for Innovation, part of the Oxford Trust Enterprise Awards.. The Awards recognise and celebrate the breadth of innovative companies and individual entrepreneurs working in the science and technology industry in the Oxfordshire region today. They acknowledge the entrepreneurs and start-ups who are just starting out on their journey to success and commend established knowledge-intensive businesses that have made a positive impact on the regional economy. The Enterprise Awards have been running since 2005 and have previously showcased future high-growth companies such as Oxbotica, Immunocore, Oxford Nanopore and Adaptix.
The awards will be presented at a special reception after Venturefest, Oxford 2019 held at Oxford Brookes University on 11th September.
Steve Burgess, CEO of
The Oxford Trust and one of the award judges, said: “There was a strong list of
applicants for all the awards, which made it extremely difficult for the judges
to shortlist for each category.”
“Our region creates
some of the world’s leading tech businesses and it’s a real privilege to find
out more about the next star companies and entrepreneurs coming through along
with those organisations that are already starting to making a real
The Oxford Trust was established by Oxford’s first true entrepreneurs Sir Martin and Audrey (Lady) Wood in 1985, founders of Oxford Instruments – the first spin-out company from the University of Oxford. The Trust has been a part of, and supported, the local innovation ecosystem for the past thirty plus years. It was the Trust that helped establish Venturefest Oxford 20 years ago, started the Enterprise Awards in 2005, set up the region’s – and the UK’s – first innovation centre, and runs the Oxford Centre for Innovation and Wood Centre for Innovation to support start-up science and tech businesses. #EnterpriseAwards2019
OnS are very excited to announce that they have been chosen as finalists in not just one category, but four for the Thames Valley Tech Awards, organised by The Business Magazine. Innovative Tech Company, Tech Leadership Team, Emerging Tech Company and Science & Technology Award. Many thanks to the Judges for recognising our company as being successful in what we do #TVTA19. @thebusinessmag
OnS have developed nanoFLUX® coating technology which reduces the temperature a heating element needs to reach before the surrounding liquid boils. This reduction allows systems to be more efficient and therefore reduces overall energy consumption. The market applications for this extend in all areas of society from domestic uses in air conditioning and refrigeration to larger industrial including waste energy recovery and energy generation to fast growing markets such as data centre cooling and high-performance electronics.
The Award evening will be a glittering black-tie dinner held at the Royal Berkshire Conference Centre at the Madejski Stadium in Reading on Thursday, September 19, 2019. Good Luck OnS!
