THE 5TH ANNUAL CSU INNOVATION AWARD
On June 7th registration were open to participate in the CSU Innovation Award 2022. For the fifth year in a row CSU challenges entrepreneurs, start-ups and students to utilize their innovative product or service in the broad field of facility management. Registration was open for all innovations initiated within the Netherlands.
The kickstart to success
The winner of the CSU Innovation Award – the innovation with the highest impact – will be rewarded with a huge kickstart: The winning contestant wins a € 10.000 investment budget together with professional guidance to enroll the innovation in the broad field of facility management.
All innovators are welcome to pitch their smart and sustainable innovations to a jury of facility management professionals, sustainability experts, product designers and trendwatchers. Ultimately the prize goes to the most promising innovation; a groundbreaking idea that helps the world around us to become better, healthier, more sustainable and smarter. The winner of the CSU Innovation Award 2022 will be announced and decorated during a celebratory finale on November 10th.
Let’s innovate together
Esmée Ficheroux, president of the jury: “Facility management is an enormous industry full of opportunities and application potential for relevant innovations. For more than fifty years CSU services clients like hotels, healthcare organizations, amusement parks, office spaces and more. Practical solutions, big and small, can make a difference for a sustainable future. As a leader in the field CSU stimulates innovation throughout the facility management industry. The CSU Innovation Award reflects this perfectly. A boost that can really make a difference for inspired innovators with bright ideas for days to come.”
Challengingly innovative for five years
This year’s challenge is a fifth anniversary edition, our first lustrum. Especially for this anniversary edition, CSU – winner of the Koning Willem I Prize – is taking an even bigger approach. With a renewed professional jury and extra attention for smart and sustainable innovation with impact for today and tomorrow.
Innovations like Bubbleflush, Plaex, Spacetime Layers, and WarpVR (all in Dutch), proved to be frontrunners and rightly won the past four editions. With their invaluable innovations and original visions for the future they managed to make the world smarter and more sustainable. For everybody, everywhere.
