Fraunhofer IPA stands for innovation, the Future, progress and neutrality. Therefore, every year we present awards for innovations in the fields of additive manufacturing, surface engineering and clean technology. As jurors at diverse award ceremonies, our experts assess the papers submitted according to various criteria, from the degree of innovation through aspects of sustainability right up to enabler qualities.
The aim is to draw attention to innovations on the market and underline the relevance of key technologies for industrial value chains. The awards are viewed as quality features and references for companies in all sectors of industry.
In addition, Fraunhofer IPA has brought out its very own award - the Hans-Jürgen Warnecke Innovation Award. Named after the former institute director of the same name, the award is directed at innovations developed at our own institute.
Discover our awards and you could become a Fraunhofer IPA award winner too.
