Participate in the Quality Innovation Award arranged by the Finnish Quality Association
The Finnish Quality Association arranges the Quality Innovation Award, where organisations receive an assessment of the level of their innovations. The competition is open to all kinds of organisations, from private traders to public organisations.
The award categories are potential innovations, business innovations, public sector innovations and environmental innovations. In addition, municipal innovations will have a dedicated category intended for discovering the best innovations from Finnish municipalities, towns and cities.
Each innovation is assessed in terms of its novelty and economic value, among other things. Apart from the value of the innovations submitted by organisations, the innovation process itself is also examined.
PRH a longstanding partner of the competition
Innovations must also be protected appropriately in order to ensure control over them and the economic benefit obtained from them. The Finnish Patent and Registration Office (PRH) has been a partner of the competition for several years. Antti Riivari, Director General of the PRH, is also the chairperson of the competition jury.
The competition is open for applications until 2 June 2023. The winning organisations will receive their awards on 15 November 2023 at the Laatupäivä event arranged by the Finnish Quality Association.
