With the German Innovation Awards, the German Design Council has established a prize that recognises the best and most effective innovations – namely solutions, detailed innovations and services that genuinely create added value for users. With 650 participants, the awards received an overwhelming response in their first year which showed that successful product innovation provides an ideal opportunity for communication and networking. The awards ceremony will take place on 29 May 2019 at the German Museum of Technology (Deutsches Technikmuseum) in Berlin.
The 2019 German Innovation Awards will be granted in two classes. In the »Excellence in Business to Consumer« and »Excellence in Business to Business« categories, the jury will bestow one Gold and up to ten Winner awards. The jury will also grant Special-Mention awards for specific aspects of product innovation.
