Individuals and development teams are invited to apply with innovative research and development solutions that demonstrate recognizable market relevance. The AMA Innovation Award carries prize money of 10,000 euros. In addition, companies can apply for the special "Young Enterprise" award if they have been on the market for no longer than five years, employ fewer than 50 people and generate annual sales of less than 10 million euros. The winner in this category will receive a free exhibition booth at SENSOR+TEST 2022.
For 22 years, the prestigious AMA Innovation Award has been presented to the developers themselves and not to the institutions behind them. The jurors from universities, research institutions and companies place particular emphasis on scientific achievement, the degree of innovation of the development and the expected opportunities in the market.
"We invite creative minds from Germany and abroad to apply and present their own developments to a broad and interested audience of experts," says jury chairman Andreas Schütze of Saarland University. "We are looking forward to applications from well-known companies and institutions as well as from newcomers, who can additionally apply for the special category 'Young Enterprises'."
