Key Facts

Nomination and Selection

In a new multi-stage nomination and selection process, the most innovative vehicles, components, equipment as well as services and infrastructure ideas will be awarded prizes. Entrants from the design, manufacturing, import, sales and service sectors are eligible to present their innovative ideas.

Evaluation and Criteria

The evaluation is based on the degree of innovation and disruptive potential, applicability and improvement over existing approaches, market potential as well as scaling opportunities, social-media impact and contribution to a sustainable mobile future.

Voting: Public & Jury

It is not only the opinion of a top-class jury of experts that counts, but also the impression of the broad EUROBIKE public, which is involved both in the pre-selection via online voting and in the award ceremony on July 14 at the EUROBIKE Show at Messe Frankfurt and thus has a major influence on the awards.

Expert jury, online voting & criteria

From 13.06.2022 – 24.06.2022 the interested online audience can vote on all submissions for the EUROBIKE INNOVATORS' Prize. Judging will take place in the categories

  • Degree of innovation and disruptive potential
  • Applicability and improvement over existing approaches and products
  • Market potential and scalability
  • Social/media impact and contribution to a sustainable future

Pitch & Prize Ceremony

The online public decides on 15 nominations in the five categories. At the awards ceremony at the EUROBIKE Show on July 14, 2022, a panel of experts from the industry, the press and players from outside the sector will select a winning project for each category. The trade show audience will also vote live for one project from all categories for the audience award.

Why to submit and to take part?

Winning projects benefit from a wide range of EUROBIKE INNOVATORS' packages. They will receive coaching sessions with industry leaders, who will be announced shortly. In addition, the winning projects will receive extensive publicity in individual press releases, presentations on the EUROBIKE website and social media, and a free stand at the VELOBerlin public festival in spring 2023.
