All applications will evaluate against three main award criteria: Innovation Capabilities, Innovation Drivers, and Innovation Results by a group of qualified assessors, under the governance of the award judging committee.

Top performing organizations will be announced and appreciated at an awarding ceremony on February 2020, coinciding with the UAE Innovation Month.

Submissions to the award will close on 14 November 2019, and organizations interested in applying this year are invited to attend a complimentary awareness session on 17 October 2019 for the award’s Framework, Criteria, and Guidelines.

Following its inception, the award has played a significant role in restructuring the innovation strategies of organizations in the UAE.
