Since 1993, the Münsterland Innovation Award has been presented every two years to Münsterland companies, universities, institutions that enrich the region with forward-looking ideas, clever developments and sustainable progress. The Münsterland e.V. awards the Münsterland Innovation Prize together with the sponsors of the competition: the savings banks in Münsterland, Provinzial Versicherung AG, Westenergie AG and Stadtwerke Münster GmbH.
The motto of the 2023/24 Innovation Award is "Progress. Innovative. Shape. Münsterland thinks ahead".
The application period for the Innovation Award 2023/24 starts on 25 October 2023 and ends on 31 January 2024. You can find out all the details on these pages.
In 2024, Münsterland e.V. will again award the Innovation Prize to Münsterland companies, institutions, consortiums or even legal entities that enrich our region with creative inventions and new developments. The motto of the award is "Progress. Innovative. Shape. Münsterland thinks ahead".
The prize is awarded in the following five categories:
New this year: Every applicant has the chance this year, in addition to the categories, to apply for the "Transformation Award | Sustainability Impact" . This prize is intended to honour particularly sustainable innovations.
In a festive ceremony, we honour the many applicants and of course the winners with their impressive achievements. All winners in the individual categories receive the Münsterland Innovation Award, prize money of 4,000 euros and the production of an image or product video tailored to the company.
The application deadline is 31 January 2024.
With the Münsterland Innovation Award, we honour forward-looking, clever and sustainable projects. Because the intelligent and far-sighted work of companies from the region has a significant influence on the well-being of people, animals and nature. Only with the courage for creative inventions and new developments do we improve work processes and pave the way for a more environmentally conscious future.
And we think that needs to be encouraged: Once again this year, Münsterland companies, institutes, working groups or legal entities can submit their innovative projects in five different categories. A renowned, independent jury will select the respective winners from all the submissions and thus turn creative developments into real success stories.
Change, redesign, progress: topics that are of enormous importance in Münsterland. Because a company's or business's ability to innovate determines its future - and this has long since reached the companies and employees in Münsterland. Find out more here.
