Innovation Award

Our vision is to become the leading tech incubator in Europe by creating innovation and new businesses in a new and integrated way. The goal is to embed the ideas of innovation and entrepreneurship throughout the university in order to support good research ideas with social impact and bring them to the market.

The award is given to professors, postdocs, doctoral candidates, students, scientists and non-scientists at RWTH Aachen University and Forschungszentrum Jülich, whose ideas contribute to the innovative and radiant power of the Aachen region.
