The Innovation Award Laser Technology offers a winning prize fund of €10,000 and is presented to European researchers in recognition of outstandingly innovative work in the field of laser technology. Organisers of the award, the Arbeitskreis Lasertechnik e.V. and the European Laser Institute ELI, have issued a call for proposals with a closing date of January 15, 2016.
The award addresses laser manufacturers, laser users and researchers who have successfully conceived and implemented an innovative idea relating to laser technology, following the project through from application oriented research to ultimate industrial application. The closed scientific and technological projects in question must centre on the use of laser light in materials processing and the methods of producing such light, and must furthermore be in their practical implementation of demonstrable commercial value to industry.
A shortlist of the best candidates will be compiled by an international jury consisting of members recruited from industry and the research community. The prize-winner as well as the second and third placed are selected on the basis of the published assessment criteria.
The official presentation of the award will take place at the International Laser Technology Congress AKL´14 on April 27, 2016 in Aachen, Germany.
