Applicants need to first register to FICI and send a summary of their inventions with pictures from their prototype ( having an MVP or prototype is a must ) and mention the competition they are willing to participate. Note due to high demands for competitions we are not able to approve all applications.آ After reviewing applications FICI will chooseآ only top 5-10 applications for that competition.
Competitions take between 3-4 days usually and last day of each competition is dedicated to marketing and technology trading.
Our team members can benefit from cash awards , gold , silver and bronze medals and special awards from ministries of science , innovation, and the most reputable industries in each competition. Also, due to a number of participants ( usually between 800-5000 inventors from +70 countries) IFIA’s competitions are the best place for inventors and entrepreneurs to introduce their invention to the biggest R&D centers and industries in a worldwide stage. In case of winning an award, they can add this valuable reputation to their professional resume and develop their project.
