About German Innovation Award

The German Innovation Awards honour products and solutions across sectors, which differ from previous solutions mainly by being user-centric and offering added value. The jury is made up of independent, interdisciplinary experts from industry, science, institutions and finance. The entries are evaluated based on the criteria: level of innovation, user benefits and efficiency. The innovation strategy should take into account aspects such as social, ecological and economical sustainability and the use of energy and resources. Factors such as location, employment potential, longevity, marketability, technical quality and function, materiality and synergy effects play a decisive role in the adjudication process.
