Nov 7, 2017

Calling for Innovations in Sensor and Measuring Technology

Berlin, 7 November 2017 - The AMA Association for Sensors and Measurement (AMA) Invites researchers and developers to compete for the renown AMA Innovation Award for 2018. The AMA is looking for research and development results in sensor and measuring technology. The submission deadline is 23 January 2018.

Individuals or developer teams may submit innovative research and development projects that have a clear market relevance. The AMA Innovation Award is endowed with 10,000 euros. Young enterprises that have been on the market no longer than five years, have no more than 50 employees, and an annual turnover of less than 10 million euros, may compete for the special Young Enterprise Award. It is endowed with a trade-fair stand at the SENSOR+TEST 2018 free of charge.

The renown AMA Innovation Award has been presented for 18 years to innovative developers in sensors and measurement. It goes to the developers themselves, not their institutes or enterprises. The jury comprises representatives from universities, institutes, and enterprises. The jury members especially consider novel approaches, the general scientific achievement, as well as the project’s chances on the market.

“Sensors and measurement advance technical progress and the development of our society. Industry 4.0, Smart Cities, or autonomous mobility, the future is based on sensor and measuring technology. That’s one of the reasons why we get innovative projects with a high degree of market relevance from all over the world,” says Jury Chair Andreas Schütze from the Saarland University. “Besides interesting and convincing developments from established enterprises and institutes, we always look forward to the development projects from young enterprises. And to provide a special incentive for these, we have created the special category Young Enterprises. The winning team from this category will be invited to present their development free of charge at the AMA Association’s own trade fair, the SENSOR+TEST.”

The conditions for participation and submission forms for the AMA Innovation Award 2018 and the special category Young Enterprises as well as brochures of submissions from previous years can be obtained free of charge at:

The deadline for submissions is 23 January 2018. The nominations and winner of the special award will be made known at the AMA Press Conference on 8 March 2018. The winners of the AMA Innovation Award 2018 will be presented at the opening ceremony of the SENSOR+TEST on 26 June 2018 in Nuremberg.
