Applications for the 19th edition of the everis Awards Portugal are open until June 30th. At a time when the Planet is faced with an unprecedented challenge in modern life, Everis believes that innovation, entrepreneurship and talent are important vehicles in the search for solutions.
This competition seeks projects of Portuguese origin based on technological innovation, which propose solutions in three distinct categories:
– New business models in the digital economy: Digital and innovative business models that translate opportunities from new technologies;
– Sectorial Technologies: Technological innovation applied to the development of products or services in areas such as industry, banking, insurance, telecommunications, retail, logistics, distribution, among others;
– Biotechnology and Health: Application of biotechnology and life sciences to the development of medicines and new therapies, as well as technological developments in the form of medical devices or “eHealth” solutions.
The winner of the everis Awards Portugal receives a € 10,000 cash prize and consultancy services for preparing for the global final valued at € 7,000. Local winners have access to the global final, in which winners from other participating countries in Latin America and Europe will be present, competing for a prize of € 60,000 in cash and mentoring services worth € 10,000.
This year, the global final will take place within the framework of the everis-talent-week (Madrid), a week dedicated to promoting the national and international entrepreneurial ecosystem through conferences, lectures, meetings with investors and networking. Additionally, Portuguese finalist projects have the possibility to participate in the Open Innovation Contest, an initiative promoted by NTT DATA, which aims to create a differentiated offer for the Asian market.
