New: theme prize 'Robotisation and Digitisation

Alongside the Entrepreneur Prize, this year will also see the awarding of the ‘Robotisation and Digitisation’ theme prize. With this additional award, the Horticulture Entrepreneur Prize is rewarding new innovations and developments. 

Good employment practices are playing an ever more important role throughout the sector because many companies are experience a shortage of labour and there is less inflow and horticultural training. We are seeing that the move towards the robotisation and digitisation of processes gives rise to  benefits in two areas: the quality of the work and the appeal of the sector. We want to reward the developers and pioneers in the sector with this extra theme prize. We are thereby highlighting this development even more.

You can enter for the theme prize as an inventor, early adopter or a project group for a genuine innovation in the field of horticulture robotisation and digitisation. The product or project does not need to have proved itself yet, or be financially viable, but it does have to be out of the start-up phase. Candidates do not need to come from the horticulture sector.
