Power Electronics Europe Events
SEMIKRON Innovation Award 2020
October 24, 2019 - January 15, 2020

The SEMIKRON Innovation Award and the SEMIKRON Young Engineer Award is given for outstanding innovations in projects, prototypes, services or novel concepts in the field of power electronics in Europe, combined with notable societal benefits in form of supporting environmental protection and sustainability by improving energy efficiency and conservation of resources. Both prizes have been initiated and are donated by the SEMIKRON Foundation which is awarding the prizes in cooperation with the European ECPE Network.

With the award the SEMIKRON Foundation wants to motivate people of all ages and organisations of any legal status to deal with innovations in power electronics, a key technology of the 21 century, in order to improve environmental protection and sustainability by energy efficiency and conservation of resources. The Innovation (EUR 10.000,00) and Young Engineer (who have not yet completed their 30th year of age) Prizes 2020 (EUR 3.000,00) will be awarded in the frame of the ECPE Annual Event in March 2020 in Berlin. A single person or a team of researchers can be awarded.

The award targets at projects, prototypes, services and novel concepts developed in Europe, which did not yet appear on the market, which are used in a novel application, or which form an absolute novelty, and therewith fulfil the requirement to be extraordinary and remarkable. Sole project proposals are not in the scope of the call, the innovation should have been verified by experiment or simulation. The degree of innovation has to conform to international standards. Societal benefits of the innovation regarding the increase of energy efficiency, conservation of resources, sustainability and environmental protection are also included.

The proposal comprising 3-5 pages in total should be structured

  • front page should show the title of the proposal, an abstract, the name and affiliation as well as a short CV

  • description of the innovation with the underlying project, prototype, service or the novel concept

  • what is the claim of being innovative

  • description of the economic, ecological and societal benefits of the innovation in qualitative and if possible also in quantitative terms

Deadline for submission ends on 15.01.2020! Proposals resp. applications with the reference ́SEMIKRON Innovation Award ́ should be sent by email to Thomas Harder, General Manager of ECPE e.V., thomas.harder@ecpe.org.
