Femtec Award

Since 2018 we have granted the Femtec Award for outstanding performance, special commitment, and inspiring innovative ideas. In the categories Leadership, Innovation and Social Impact, we honour people and initiatives that set examples through their actions, motivate others or make an important contribution to our society.



For the category “Leadership” we are looking for positive role models who inspire their own team with authentic leadership and give people individual freedom to further their own development. We emphasize in particular the aspect of promoting intercultural, diverse and progressive understanding.

In the “Social Impact” category, we award prizes to people and initiatives who are a source of inspiration for diversity in society through their own initiative – often beyond their professional or academic duties. Our focus here is on plans, ideas or projects that contribute to social change.

Creative visionaries of a different future who are forward-thinking and have the courage to initiate change and set new impulses are honoured in the category “Innovation“. We want to recognize pioneers with self-initiative and entrepreneurial thinking who aim for a more sustainable future with their innovative products or services.

The award in 2021:

This year we are once again looking for role models, role models and initiatives for diverse teams, inspiring personalities and innovative projects. Proposals and nominations can be submitted to us until July 15. This will take place in three phases:

  1. First, we need a short letter of recommendation why the proposed initiative or person should receive an award from the Femtec Network 2021. This can be done informally by sending an email to Harz-Vratil@femtec.org and mentioning the respective category Leadership, Social Impact or Innovation. Deadline is Juy 15.
  2. Subsequently, an award jury will review all nominations and compile a short list. All candidates on this list will also be informed.
  3. A public voting will finally determine the respective award winners. It is planned to present the awards during the summer celabration event on 10.09.
