From the public invitation to participate, a total of 220 projects have been registered from 42 countries, all of which stand out for their exceptional quality and originality. In a pre-selection, ten projects have now been shortlisted in each category. In addition, six projects across both categories have been defined as candidates for the Special Prize for Innovation. In a next step, the international, interdisciplinary jury meeting in November will nominate the winners.
