New Industry 5.0 Award contest opens: apply by 1 April

EFFRA, Manufuture and the European Commission are launching the first Industry 5.0 Award dedicated to EU-funded projects whose results make European industry more resilient, sustainable, and human-centric.

The Industry 5.0 Award is a recognition prize for EU-funded projects that advance the Industry 5.0 vision. Projects should be able to present a convincing and inspiring solution, addressing Industry 5.0's three main pillars: sustainability, human-centricity and resilience, while also being clearly applicable in industry.

Eligible projects must have obtained funding from Horizon 2020, Horizon Europe or the European Institute of Innovation and Technology. The official start date of the project must be after 31 August 2018 and the projects should clearly be applicable in the industry. The deadline for submission is 1 April 2022 – 17:00 CET (Brussels time).

Projects will be evaluated by a high-level independent jury from industry, civil society, social partners, and academia. The winner will receive communication support from the European Commission, including the preparation of a promotional video, social media publicity through Commission channels and an article in the Horizon Magazine. Finalists will be invited to the award ceremony during the annual R&I Days in June 2022 where they will be able to exhibit their projects.
