Three competitions to launch tomorrow's solutions
- 21th Innovation Trophies: success based on the highest standards
The Innovation Trophies — a major event organised by VINITECH-SIFEL — are awarded to the most innovative products, techniques and processes in the vine-growing and winemaking world, and also in the fruit and vegetable sector.
A showcase for innovation in our industries
Tremendously popular with companies both nationally and internationally, the Innovation Trophies illustrate the industries' strong potential to devise ways of increasing not just the quantity but also the quality of production.
- 12th Oenovation Throphy: encouraging young business creators in the wine-growing sector
Created in 2001 by the Bordeaux Monstesquieu Technology Park and organised in partnership with VINITECH-SIFEL, the Oenovation® Trophy remains a one-of-a-kind competition in France: its role is to promote innovation by young business creators in products and services intended for the wine-growing industry.
To support and promote these pioneering projects proposed by entrepreneurs or by young companies less than four years old, the 11th edition of the Oenovation Trophy will offer the award-winning company an overall prize of €37,000, and will also include support in the form of legal advice and assistance with marketing and commercial strategy. Furthermore, to promote the development of the award-winning project, the Bordeaux Montesquieu Technology Park undertakes to accommodate the prizewinner in its business incubator in Martillac (Gironde). The Montesquieu Community of Municipalities has agreed to pay six months' rent for this office.
- 2nd Grand Innovation & Development Prize sponsored by the Academie Amorin
VINITECH-SIFEL will be hosting the "Grand Innovation & Development Prize" award ceremony, created by the Académie Amorim in 2016. This competition is aimed at young business creators who have implemented an innovative wine-related project targeting wine waiters, wine shops, supermarket retailers or the general public.
