Innovation prizes awarded to the most inventive minds


The success of these inventions is an incentive to intensify our future efforts to maintain the quality of European patents as an effective instrument in the protection of innovation.”Alison Brimelow, President of the EPO


In 2010 the European Patent Office (EPO) and the European Commission (EC) has honored five prizewinners from Germany, Switzerland, the USA and Canada at the European Inventor Award gala ceremony in Madrid under the presidency of their Royal Highnesses Prince Felipe and Princess Letizia of Asturias.


Nomination proposals were submitted by the public and by patent examiners at the European Patent Office and Europe’s national patent offices, and the winners were selected from among the nominees by a highly credited jury established of patent experts.


The winners represent different technical fields ranging from information systems to ecology, and are presented in four award categories: Industry, Non-European countries, SMEs /Research and Lifetime achievement.


The European Inventor Award ceremony was held in conjunction with the European Patent Forum (EPF) organized by the EPO and EC.


Speakers at the EPF included opinion leaders from politics, business, science and civil society. In addition, top managers from the energy sector, parliamentarians, EU and national civil servants, patent practitioners as well as representatives from international organizations also attended the event.

During the two-day conference the participants had the opportunity to review reports and attend panel discussions on Europe’s renewable energy potential and share their views about economic and political challenges for the renewable energy industry, as well as about adaptations of the IP systems to fast-track green innovations.
