THE IDEA

The Cleanroom Award looks for the best ideas for innovation, sustainability and energy efficiency in cleanrooms. Companies, organisations, research institutions and individuals can apply for this. The winner receives EUR 3,000 prize money.

The Winners

We have been awarding the Cleanroom Award annually at Cleanzone in Frankfurt am Main since 2012.

 

And the winner is ... Mathias Schirmer from KEK GmbH, Germany, could not have been more surprised about winning the Cleanroom Award. But the public has decided. For the innovative development of the folding table for service technicians as winner of the Cleanroom Award. What's special: The table is extremely narrow and can be folded up quickly. This is an important requirement for service technicians in the customers' clean rooms.

 

We congratulate the KEK team!

CREATIVE PRIZE

Since 2015 the CleanroomAcademy awards the Creative Prize for the most ergonomically, visually or creatively designed cleanroom. All innovations should offer a real alternative to “too much whitness” in cleanrooms.

THE WINNERS

MED-EL from Austria won the Creative Prize for the second time. This time with awell-considered colour concept in their clean rooms where cochlear implants are produced. The Farbstudio Schleicher (colour studio from Alfred Schleicher) with Cordula Bahm developed a whole colour world in which the employees feel very comfortable. So well that the office team now finally wants a beautifully designed working environment too. MED-EL had already won the first edition of the Creative Prize. That was a great motivation to "keep going beauty".

 

Congratulations to the MED-EL team!
