Almost 70 submissions for the "Women's Prize for Digitization and Innovation" initiated by ORF and Infineon Austria
Vienna, Villach, June 7, 2022 - The "Women's Award for Digitization and Innovation" launched by ORF and Infineon Technologies Austria has been met with great interest. This is shown by the almost 70 applications from young women who submitted their final theses (HTL, university of applied sciences or university) on technical matters related to digitization and innovation.
This great response to the prize, which was offered for the first time this year, confirms the intention of ORF and Infineon Austria, as well as media partner APA, to use this campaign to help promote female, digital- and technology-savvy talent and their entry into technical professions.
After the submission deadline on May 31, 2022, an expert advisory board will now select the finalists. The finalists will then be invited to present their theses at an event on June 27, 2022, in front of a prominent jury of experts who will select the winners. The ceremonial announcement and awarding of the prize winners and the winner of the additional prize in the "Tech for Green" category will take place directly after the presentations.
