The only conidition of entrance in that the business units (BUs) are be headquartered in a Western European country. Sister plants in Eastern Europe are also encouraged to apply. The competition takes place in parallel in France, Germany, Great Britain, Spain, Italy, the Netherlands, Switzerland and Turkey. A national winner and a select number of laureates in each country will be chosen by the jury. An overall champion will be selected during a management conference in the fall of 2016, and they will receive the “Industrial Excellence Award Europe”. Our media partners will report on the competition and the events in the spring of 2016. Please find the application form and download it from the site.
