For the 24th time, FEDIL – The Voice of Luxembourg’s Industry – is organising its innovation prize, awarded alternately with the Environment Prize.

Since 1982, this prize has been intended to encourage creativity and innovation in companies and is intended to reward innovators working for companies, independent innovators and young researchers.

The projects submitted must stand out for their innovative and original character, while being of interest to the Luxembourg economy.

It would be more accurate to speak of Innovation Awards (with an s), as there are several awarded each year. In 2018, there were four winners out of some twenty applications submitted:

– Goodyear for its project “Vacuum Cure Technology” (mould technology for the vulcanisation of tyres under vacuum) in the “Process” category;

– Cebi Luxembourg for its “Blow-by Heater” project (an electrically heated component used to remove ice that may form in a passage of the engine block) in the “Product engineering” category;

– Virelux Inspection Systems for its “Optifrag” project (automatic control of car window fragmentation thanks to automated optical solution) in the “SME” category;

– Docunify for its “Admintech” project (digital platform for the implementation of secure collaborative work) in the “Start-up” category.

“One of the main advantages of this prize is to enable the winning company a gain very good visibility,” observes Marc Ferring, Director R&D and Innovation Support at Luxinnovation. “It is a great opportunity to highlight truly innovative achievements that do not always have the opportunity to be valued in this way.”

Interested innovators can consult the rules of this Innovation Award and fill in the registration form before 10 July 10 2020.
