DirectIndustry’s i-NOVO Awards will identify and reward the most exceptional products and equipment at Hannover Messe across three categories:
● The i-NOVO Design Award will recognize products that take a step outside of the box. Products in this category will integrate current design trends, be visually unique, demonstrate exceptional attention to ergonomy or propose an innovative solution for an emerging need.
● The i-NOVO Eco Award will be attributed to products that have little (or much less) impact on the environment. Such products will be sustainably manufactured with low or improved embodied energy and ecofriendly materials that are biodegradable or reusable. Products in this category will also be sustainable over time with low energy consumption or the integration of renewable energy and a durable product life cycle.
● The i-NOVO Tech Award will be given to products that demonstrate novel use of technology whether it be the invention of a new technology, a technological innovation in the fabrication process (automatic or manual), the use of advanced technology or materials to improve a design, the application of existing technologies within a new domain, the integration of several new technologies in one product or a completely innovative concept.
Officially launched on January 26, 2016, this competition is open to manufacturers in the following areas: measurement, automation, electricity / electronics, metrology, mechanical components, hydraulics / pneumatics.
Entries will be accepted from January 26 until midnight of April 01, 2016. Contest details and entry procedures can be found at inovo.directindustry.com.
