All exhibiting companies at EuroTier can enter the awards competition and submit their innovations which will be examined and discussed in depth by an independent commission. The decision on whether a product is worthy of the EuroTier Innovation Award is taken by simple majority vote. 

EuroTier Innovation Award in gold 

A EuroTier Innovation Gold Award is conferred on a product that presents a new concept and a changed functionality and the application of which gives rise to a new process or marks a substantial improvement to an existing process. The following criteria are critical for a product to earn a gold medal:

  • Relevance at farm level
  • Animal welfare
  • Benefits in profitability and processes
  • Benefits to environment and energy use
  • Benefits for work load and safety

EuroTier Innovation Award in silver

The EuroTier Innovations Committee is a panel of independent scientists, researchers and consultants. Forward-looking farmers have also been on the committee since 2003 to reflect the needs and views at farmgate level. The members on the committee guarantee that their decisions are unbiased and based on profound expert knowledge. All innovations submitted in time and before the closing date will be assessed to the same strict criteria for eligibility for the EuroTier Innovation Award in gold or silver.
