Registration for the INTERMAT Innovation Awards

Selection process and role of the INTERMAT Innovation Awards judging panel

The selection process takes place in three successive stages:

  • 1 meeting of the select committee. This committee selects the entries which are allowed to take part and distributes entries among the Official Panel members according to their area of expertise.
  • 1 meeting of the Official Panel to assess each entry
  • 1 meeting of the Official Panel to decide on the Award winners.

Means of assessment of entries and award of prizes

Entries are uploaded onto a specific online platform to enable the panel members to assess them.

These entries comprise information on the company and a presentation of the product, completed online by the exhibitor, which can then be added to with extra attachments.
