bauma Innovation Award 2019

bauma Innovation Award 2019

I‌t‘s time for the finals. The 15 candidates for the bauma Innovation Award 2019 have been selected. They were presented to the general public at the bauma Media Dialogue held on January 28 and 29 in Munich. Around 220 trade journalists had an opportunity to evaluate them there as well. The Dialogue was preceded by a two-round selection process during which the companies and institutes were chosen. The five winners will be honored in the Court Church of All Saints in the Munich Residence on April 7, the evening before bauma opens.

The bauma Innovation Award is being presented for the 12th time in the categories Machine, Components/Digital Systems, Construction Work/Construction Method/Construction Process, Science/Research and Design. A total of 138 entries were submitted from Germany and abroad. The jury will evaluate the entries on the basis of criteria that apply to the industry and its future. These criteria include questions like: How practical is a solution? Or how much economic potential does it have? The spread of digitalization played a key role, just as environmental protection, sustainability, resource efficiency and humanization of jobs did. The key criteria in the Design category are aesthetics and appearance or the link between form and function.
