The German Innovation Awards aim to change that. They make great achievements visible to a wide audience and ensure successful positioning in the market.

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.
