InfraTech Innovation Award 2024

The Innovation Award will also be presented in 2024 during InfraTech! In these times with many challenges, innovation is more important than ever. Victor Haase, State Secretary in the Ministry of the Environment, Nature Conservation and Transport of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia will present the Innovation Award at a festive ceremony on the exhibition floor on January 10, 2024.

With the prize, the jury honors exceptional ideas that may relate to all subject areas of InfraTech. The 2024 InfraTech Innovation Award will be presented in the following categories:

  • Product innovations in infrastructure

The Product Innovation category includes entries that innovate an existing product (better performance, ease of use, material selection, etc.) or develop a new product. The jury pays particular attention to whether a product innovation contributes to climate goals, whether it is a closed-loop solution, or whether it offers a solution to reduce CO2 or nitrogen emissions, for example.

  • Process innovations in infrastructure 

The category "Process Innovation" includes submissions in which an innovative production or realization process (manufacturing, transport, logistics, assembly, digitalization, financing, etc.) has been developed. A process achieved by innovatively combining or stringing together activities to realize existing or new products and/or services. 


Even if you are not (yet) an exhibitor at InfraTech, you can still participate in the Innovation Award. The award aims to promote innovation in the infrastructure sector and therefore we invite everyone to submit an innovation. 


The winner of the Innovation Award 2022 is ACO Tiefbau Vertriebs GmbH

"We are super happy to have been in the final. We didn’t expect to win,” says Florian Meyer from ACO Tiefbau Vertriebs GmbH. His colleague Michael Meyer adds: "We were happy about the top three. I believe that the current events, such as the floods in the Ahrtal last year, gave us a tailwind." Together with their colleague Tim Uhing, the award winners have developed a system in which the wastewater in flood hot spots is collected underground in an inlet box and gradually led into the sewer system.
