AC²-Innovationspreis Region Aachen
From 2012 the former "Innovationspreis Region Aachen " will be awarded as the "AC²-Innovationspreis Region Aachen ". This award goes to an enterprise, an institution or a person that has made an outstanding contribution to the development of the Aachen Region as a business location. The Innovation Prize is a tribute for special social or entrepreneurial achievements. It is to encourage enterprise in the Region and underline the Region as an innovative business location on both a national and international basis.
The award process of the Innovation Prize has changed: previously individual persons or entities could actively contend for the prize, but now nominations will be made. A Board of Trustees made up of recognised regional and national members of academia, the business community, the civil society and politics will select the prize-winner of the "AC²-Innovationspreis Region Aachen".
AC² - START-UP, GROWTH, INNOVATION
The format of the AC² competitions and the Innovationspreis Region Aachen are now combined under "AC² - Start-up, Growth, Innovation".
In the categories start-up and growth all start-up enterprises and high-growth SMEs can continue to benefit from cooperation with voluntary consultants from the AC² Consultant Network, to develop sustainable business and growth plans. The main focus should be on “innovation”.
Joint Awards Ceremony
Both the Start-up and Growth Prize and the "AC²-Innovationspreis Region Aachen" will be presented at the joint awards ceremony in June.
