The network ZENIT e.V. announces the innovation award 2017/2018


Success through cooperation

For the eighth time now the network ZENIT e.V. is awarding its renowned innovation prize, endowed with 5.000 Euros, under this year’s motto “success through cooperation”. Cooperation between companies or companies and a university or rather research institute are required, which developed jointly innovative products or services.

Small and medium-sized enterprises with up to 500 employees and/or universities and research institutions from NRW are entitled to participate. At least one of the cooperation partners must have his headquarter in the country.

NRW Minister of Economics Prof. Dr. Andreas Pinkwart kindly agreed to serve as patron for the fourth time. Since the first call for tenders in the year 2000, the association has been contributing to strengthen North Rhine-Westphalia as a business location and to give small to medium-sized businesses a special opportunity to present themselves by varying the competitive subjects.

In addition to the prize money for the winning project, all winners receive PR-support and – if they are not yet members of the Zenit e.V. network – a one year free membership.
