GreenTech to reward innovation and excellence

Innovation and excellence will be rewarded at GreenTech. The Innovation Award is now open for entries.

Entries are now open for the GreenTech Innovation Award, which recognises Innovation and excellence.

All exhibitors are invited to submit their most innovative concepts, products and technologies for consideration by completing the online application by April 1.

The award will be judged by an independent, international jury and the winners announced on the first day of GreenTech – Tuesday June 14.

For the second time, the judging will take place under the inspiring leadership of Aalt Dijkhuizen – former President and Chairman of Wageningen University and Research Centre. Dijkhuizen has been appointed by the Dutch government as President Dutch Topsector agriculture & Food. “Global food security poses an unprecedented challenge to human ingenuity. This requires new knowledge and technology,”  Dijkhuizen said. “The Green Tech Innovation Award puts the best examples centre stage. As chairman of the jury , I therefore urge you to submit your innovation with us and compete for this prestigious award.”

The award nominees and winner will enjoy high profile attention on the show floor and full press coverage in the global media. The nominees will be presented in the InnovationLAB, especially designed to be an inspiring environment where pioneering products and other revolutionary ideas are presented and discussed by exhibitors and visitors alike, and where knowledge and experiences in the field of horticulture innovation are shared freely. In this futuristic setting, the nominated products will be in the spotlight.

“Knowledge and innovation are the cornerstones of GreenTech”, said GreenTech manager Mariska Dreschler. “A visit to GreenTech offers you a view on the future and can have significant impact on any business,” she said.

With water becoming scarcer and more polluted every day, innovation is crucial for sustainability, which is why GreenTech will continue to support the AMREF Flying Doctors by donating the registration fees of the Innovation Award.
