Are you wondering what the ceremony of an internationally recognised innovation prize looks like? Join EPO on 17 June 2021 at 19.00 (CEST) and get an insight into how the European Inventor Award promotes a greater awareness of Europe’s potential to innovate and stimulate better utilisation of the patent system. Created in 2006, the prize showcases outstanding inventors and their inventions, and tells their success stories to a wider public at large.

For the first time in the history of the event, the ceremony of the 2021 edition of the European Inventor Award will be held in digital format.

The Award will recognise the achievements of fifteen finalists in five categories (Industry, Research, Non-EPO countries, SMEs, and Lifetime achievement) and the Popular Prize, as chosen by the public.
