The HERMES AWARD is one of the world's most prestigious technology prizes. It is offered every year by Deutsche Messe AG in connection with the HANNOVER MESSE industrial technology fair. Each year's award recognizes a product which is characterized by outstanding technological innovation and which is on show at HANNOVER MESSE for the first time.
An independent jury under the chairmanship of Dr. Wolfgang Wahlster, who heads the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI), has nominated five companies for the 2018 HERMES AWARD. The five solutions developed by these firms will be presented at the formal Opening Ceremony for HANNOVER MESSE on the evening of 22 April. The winner will then be announced by Anja Karliczek, Germany’s Minister for Education and Research.
