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.

More about the Innovation Award

From creative developments to real success stories

Innovation as a vision

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.
