Annual European Inventor Award 2020-Report in 2021

Since 2006, the European Patent Office (EPO) has organized an annual prize to reward the creativity of inventors.

This prestigious prize, which is open to inventors even from outside the 38 EPO member states, is awarded in 5 categories (industry, research, non EPO member countries, SMEs and lifetime achievement).

Due to the coronavirus health crisis, the European Inventor Award 2020 is postponed to the year 2021. The names of the finalists will therefore not be announced until May 2021, followed by the award ceremony to be held in Monaco on 17 June 2021.
