The Technology Innovator of the Year Award
Junkosha is on a mission to find an individual or team working within industry or academic research that deserves recognition for their innovative work on products used in the delivery of Interventional Medical procedures or Microwave and MilimetreWave technologies.
In recognition of this contribution, the Junkosha Technology Innovator of the Year Award was designed to highlight these achievements and their contributions to society.
Upon conclusion of the year-long scheme, one winning entrant - judged by a distinguished panel -will be awarded a sum of $25,000 to invest in their worthwhile project.
Apply for The Technology Innovator of the Year Award
The first step in this journey is to complete a short online application (see below) describing your innovation and why it deserves to be shortlisted for the award - the awards team will then reach out to discuss your application and assist you on your Technology Innovator of the Year Award journey.
You will then be invited to undertake a secondary questionnaire to provide the judging panel with additional information to inform the shortlisting process.
The awards panel will then review all entries to choose up to three per sector (Interventional Medical and Microwave and MillimetreWave technologies) to go on to a video interview stage.
Following this, in a relaxed and friendly session, the judging panel will seek to learn as much as possible about your project to select the sole winner.
