How it works
The Innovation Award by facility management service CSU highlights innovations across the entire spectrum of the facility management industry, a world with tremendous potential. The top ten submissions will be presented to an independent panel of judges, professionals from various industries with a broad network and a clear vision of innovation. Like the people at CSU, these experts are dedicated to finding ways to make today’s work and living environment cleaner, smarter, and more sustainable. They will ultimately select a shortlist of six innovations that will have the opportunity to pitch their ideas live. The audience will then have the chance to vote. Three finalists then go to the Grand Final. The winner of 2023 will be announced during the final at the CSU Congress on November 8.

Esmée Ficheroux, Jury Chair of the CSU Innovation Award
“Tomorrow is full of challenges that we want to find solutions for today. How do we keep the world clean? How can we make the cleaning profession smarter, contributing to the well-being of employees? And most importantly, what lies ahead that we are not yet aware of or haven’t even thought of, which challenges or advances the facility management industry? These are all questions that occupy us daily, and we know that the best solutions often lie just outside our field of vision. That is why we take great pleasure in making things smarter, sharper and cleaner together. Perhaps even with you? With the CSU Innovation Award, we seek inspiration from creativity, imagination, and perhaps seemingly outrageous insights from smart outsiders. In turn, we are happy to contribute to realizing those ideas and helping to develop entrepreneurial spirit, just as we ourselves, in our family business, feel challenged to innovate through entrepreneurship.”
