Calling for Innovations in Sensor and Measuring Technology

Berlin, 2 November 2016 - The AMA Association for Sensors and Measurement (AMA) is calling for submissions to the AMA Innovation Award 2017. Developer and research teams are asked to compete with innovative research and development projects in the area of sensor and measuring technology. The deadline for submissions is 24 January 2017.

The AMA Innovation Award is endowed with 10,000 euros for the developers themselves, not their institutes or enterprises. Individuals or developer teams may participate with projects that have clear market relevance. The AMA Association also provides the special Young Enterprise Award endowed with a trade-fair stand at the SENSOR+TEST 2017 free of charge.

The renowned AMA Innovation Award has been presented for 17 years to innovative developers in sensors and measurement. 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.

“We are elated every year to find such a plethora of ideas for solutions to the challenges of the future by applying the latest technology,” says jury chair Professor Andreas Schütze from the Saarland University. “Besides the submissions of established enterprises, the many interesting projects from young enterprises must also be mentioned. These submissions compete in the special category Young Enterprises. The winner in this category is invited to present the project at the AMA’s trade fair SENSOR+TEST.”

The conditions for participation and submission forms for the AMA Innovation Award 2017 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 24 January 2017. The nominations and winner of the special award will be made known at the AMA Press Conference on 9 March 2017. The winners of the AMA Innovation Award 2017 will be presented at the opening ceremony of the SENSOR+TEST on 30 May 2017 in Nuremberg.
