More than 650 researchers, staff and students have participated in the Innovation Award. Many of these ideas have led to concrete applications and even formed the basis for new companies. Participants of the Innovation Award can explore the potential of their idea, while getting professional support on the way.
Although the Innovation Award will contribute greatly to the work of the winners, we make sure that every attendant is able to benefit from participating.
Finalists will learn how to pitch their idea on stage to an experienced jury during a pitch training.
When participants reach the finals of the Award, they will receive a professional pitch training and a stage for their idea. This helped participants attracting more funding and support. The three winners of the Innovation Award will each receive €10.000 to give their idea a kick-start in making a difference.
