Answers to your questions

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact our project team.

Is it only companies who can enter a project, or can individuals do so as well?

Companies and organizations with their own legal form are admitted as contestants in the main categories. In the special IoT Young Leader and Social Impact categories, individuals or projects that were not started by an existing company or organization (e.g. non-profit project, open source project) can also participate.

Details can be found in the entry conditions.

What kind of projects can participate?

New IoT products, IoT business models and ecosystem concepts as well as IoT solutions for internal corporate use are permitted. Details can be found in the entry conditions.

In which categories can I submit my project?

A total of eight categories are available for selection. Seven of them for projects: Retail & Customer Experience, Mobility & Logistics, Building Automation, Smart Farming & Agriculture, Industrial IoT & Smart Factory, IoT Analytics & AI and Social Impact.

The IoT Young Leader is an exception. This category honors an individual, and not a project.

Read category descriptions.

At what stage must my project be?

The project does not necessarily have to be already implemented. Concepts will also be accepted if they are presented coherently in the application and the digital value is clearly defined.

Can I submit my project in multiple categories?

No, a project can only be submitted in one category.

I have a question about category selection. Who can help?
