Umicore Innovation Award
In 2012, Umicore will organise its third Innovation Awards, in order to recognise outstanding achievements that bring tangible value to the company through a clearly innovative approach.
Umicore employees from all over the world are encouraged to step forward with their most innovative ideas.
The previous awards aroused an enormous amount of interest and enthousiasm throughout the organisation.
All submitted projects will be assessed by a jury comprising both internal and external experts. For each category a winning team will then be selected.
Five categories are defined to cover the whole range of Umicore activities:
Science and Technology
Technical Process Improvement
Non-Technical Process Improvement
New Business Development
Environment, Health & Safety
