In order to face this worldwide exceptional period due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Innovation Week IWA 2020 will be held online. Also, many inventors are experiencing unexpected changes in their agenda due to the actual crisis and in order to allow everyone to compete and promote innovation, the IWA 2020 event agenda was extended to 103 days (15 weeks from September 8th to December 19th, 2020).
Thereby, since September 8th, 2020 the event started its activities officially by a Live Broadcast of the OFEED President opening speech and the event will continue until December 19th, 2020.
So, during these four months, interested participants are able to apply until December 12th, 2020, and the jury will evaluate a different group of participants each week. Also, please note that if the results of a country are published, the remaining inventors of that country won’t be able to submit their proposals.
