The European Inventor Award is one of Europe's most prestigious innovation prizes.
Launched by the EPO in 2006, it honours individual inventors and teams of inventors whose pioneering inventions provide answers to some of the biggest challenges of our times.
The finalists and winners are selected by an independent jury comprising former Award finalists. Together, they examine the proposals for their contribution towards technical progress, social and sustainable development and economic prosperity.
The 2022 virtual Award ceremony was held on 21 June 2022.
