The BioMed Technology Foundation is launching the Freiburg Innovation Prize, which is being donated for the fifth time together with the Freiburg innovation leader in the field of medical technology, Stryker Leibinger GmbH & Co. KG, and supported by the Sparkasse Freiburg-Nördlicher Breisgau. It is endowed with a total of 10,000 euros. In addition, for the first time, the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Southern Upper Rhine and the Freiburg Chamber of Skilled Crafts are donating two “special prizes” each worth € 3,000 for the areas of industry, commerce, trade and services as well as craft.
It honors exemplary, original and innovative achievements in the development of new products, processes, services and business models. Essential selection criteria for the award-worthiness are the degree of innovation, the market and future viability as well as the economic importance of the submitted competition entries. Only products, materials, processes, concepts or research results are included in the evaluation that are applicable in practice and marketable or represent the viable basis for a future-oriented business model.
An independent jury will decide on the award of the prize. The deadline for applications is January 31, 2021. Application documents are available on the Internet at www.freiburg.de/innovationspreis.
With the award, the BioMed Freiburg Technology Foundation has been honoring the economic performance and inventiveness of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) from the Freiburg economic region, i.e. from the urban district of Freiburg and the two districts of Breisgau-Hochschwarzwald and Emmendingen, every two years since 1992.
In addition to the city of Freiburg, the University of Freiburg, the Chamber of Industry and Commerce of the Southern Upper Rhine, the Association of Industrial Companies Baden eV (WVIB), the Freiburg Chamber of Crafts and the Sparkasse Freiburg-Nördlicher Breisgau are all involved in the BioMed Freiburg Technology Foundation.
The last winners of the Freiburg Innovation Prize were the four Freiburg start-up and spin-off companies CorTec GmbH, dotscene GmbH, Glassomer GmbH and Mondas GmbH as well as the designer Christian Czapek from Staufen for his wheelchair bike, which can be divided into three segments.
