The German Innovation Awards honour products and solutions that distinguish themselves primarily by their user centricity and added value compared to earlier solutions across all industrial sectors – because innovations that shape the future and improve our lives come from all industries. Sometimes you recognise them at first glance – but often this is not the case. The German Innovation Awards intend to change that. The competition makes outstanding achievements visible to a wide audience and ensures successful positioning in the market.
The announcement phase for the German Innovation Awards 2021 has ended.
On the occasion of the German Innovation Awards 2021, we have developed a special online programme this year with »Insights into Innovation«.
We spoke with various experts about Smart 5.0: Connectivity, Robotic & AI, Future of Mobility, Green Future, Future Living & Working, Lighting, Material Innovation and Medical & Health. We also organised interesting talks on the topics of innovation management and Artificial Intelligence. Larissa Niedecken (Design Lead, Co-Creating Program, Central Europe, FUJITSU), Dr. Torsten Wingenter (Managing Director, Digital Catalysts), Lutz Dietzold (CEO, German Design Council) and Ingolf Baur (physicist, scientific journalist, moderator) discussed innovation management. The topic of Artificial Intelligence was discussed by Dipl-Ing. Filiz Elmas (Head of Business Unit Development Artificial Intelligence, DIN Deutsches Institut für Normung e. V.), Dr. Elias Knubben (Vice President and Head of Corporate Research and Innovation, FESTO SE & Co. KG), Lutz Dietzold and Ingolf Baur.
From 18 May, the videos for our online programme will be published.
We will also report on »Insights into Innovation« and the winners of the German Innovation Awards 2021 on our social media channels Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and Pinterest. From 18 May, all award winners will also be presented in our online gallery.
We look forward to offering you exciting insights on the topic of innovation!

Since 1953 the competitions organised by the German Design Council honour achievements in design, branding and innovation on an international level. Design, brand and innovation: this perfect triad is essential to equip companies for the tough competition in the wake of Industry 4.0 and digitalisation, because each of these has an impact on the others.
