15 finalists shortlisted for bauma Innovation Award 2019
Five winners will be honored on the evening before the opening of the bauma exhibition
The bauma innovation award 2019 will be presented in five categories: (1) machinery, (2) components and digital systems, (3) construction work, construction methods, and construction processes; (4) science and research; and (5) design.
The five winners will be honored in the Court Church of All Saints in the Munich Residence on the evening before the opening of the bauma exhibition, which will be held from April 8 to 15 in Munich.
The jury will evaluate the entries on the basis of criteria that apply to the industry and its future. These criteria include questions such as: How practical is a solution; how much economic potential does it have; what role has the spread of digitalization played, just as environmental protection, sustainability, resource efficiency and humanization of jobs? The key criteria in the design category are aesthetics and appearance or the link between form and function.
The bauma innovation award is a joint project under the leadership of the German Engineering Federation (VDMA), bauma, Central Association of the German Construction Industry (HDB), German Construction Confederation (ZDB) and German Building Materials Association (BBS).
