About the Award:
The European Inventor Award, launched by the EPO and European Commission's DG Enterprise and Industry in 2006, gives inventors the recognition they deserve. It is an incentive to all other potential winners. It protects ideas and encourages innovation.
The driving force and motor behind the innovation process are people with a passion for discovery. Without the inquisitive mind, the search for new ideas, and creativity of human beings there would be no inventive spirit and no progress. As one of the most prestigious competitions of its type, this award pays tribute to the creativity of all inventors who, in applying their technical, scientific and intellectual skills, make a major contribution to technological impact, economic growth, and improvement in people's daily lives.
