The prizes for best innovation during SLU’s 40 years will be awarded to the person(s) who through innovation and creativity have developed products and/or services with a significant impact on society.
The innovations must originate from research done at SLU and be commercially available.
The level of innovation and the societal benefits will be the main assessment criteria when choosing the winners.
- SLU Holding does a first assessment of the nominated candidates.
- A jury consisting of Pro Vice-Chancellor Erik Fahlbeck and senior representatives from each faculty will choose the winners.
- The jury’s decision cannot be appealed.
The originators of the three winning proposals will be awarded a diploma from the vice-chancellor as part of the doctoral award ceremony. One representative for each winning proposal, with one guest each, will be invited to the doctoral award ceremony and banquet in Uppsala on 7 October.
