AMA Innovation Award 2024: Submit applications now

AMA Association awards prizes for developments in sensor and measurement technology


Berlin, Nov. 3, 2023 - The AMA Association for Sensor and Measurement (AMA) invites innovative minds from science and industry to apply for the AMA Innovation Award 2024. The search is on for novel research and development results in sensor and measurement technology. The deadline for entries is January 25, 2024.


Individuals and development teams with research and development solutions from sensor and measurement technology with recognizable market relevance - i.e. genuine innovation and not pure invention - are eligible to apply. The AMA Innovation Award comes with prize money of 10,000 euros. In addition, new and young companies can apply for the special 'Young Company' award. The conditions for this are that the company has not been on the market for longer than five years, has fewer than 50 employees and generates annual sales of less than 10 million euros. The winner in this special category will receive a free exhibition stand at SENSOR+TEST 2024.


"Apply with your new ideas from sensor and measurement technology and present them to a broad, international audience of experts at SENSOR+TEST 2024," says jury chairman Andreas Schütze of Saarland University. "Surprise us with your innovative developments. Whether established company or startup, national or international, individual developer or project team, we are very excited about the innovation dynamics of our industry."


The renowned AMA Innovation Award has been presented for 24 years. What makes it special is that the developers and development teams are honored for their achievements, not the companies or institutions behind them. The jury consists of experts from universities, research institutions and industry. They examine the scientific achievement, the degree of innovation of the development, but also the expected market opportunities.
The deadline for entries is January 25, 2024, and the nominations and winners of the special award will be announced at the AMA press conference on March 6, 2024. The winners of the AMA Innovation Award 2024 will be presented at the opening ceremony of SENSOR+TEST 2024 on June 11, 2024, in Nuremberg, where the nominated teams will exhibit their innovations.  


Conditions of participation and tender documents for the AMA Innovation Award 2024 and the special category 'Young Company' as well as brochures with the award winners and all applications from previous years can be found free of charge at:
