About the Amsterdam Science & Innovation Award
The Amsterdam Science & Innovation Award is the Amsterdam competition for innovative ideas with a societal and/or commercial impact. It is an annual competition for the best applicable innovation resulting from Amsterdam research. The feasibility of the idea and the social benefit play an important role in the jury assessment. This award is open to all researchers, staff and students in all disciplines from all Amsterdam universities, universities of applied sciences, academic hospitals and public research centers. The finals of the Award will be held for the fourteenth time on Thursday, 26 November 2019.
IXA launched the award at the Science Park back in 2005. Since then, it has grown to become an innovation prize that is open to researchers and students from all Amsterdam universities, universities of applied sciences and institutes.
Since its launch, the Award has generated more than 400 innovative, bright and applicable ideas. Many of these have resulted in concrete applications and some even formed the basis for new businesses.
