2019 “Innovation Prize for Ergonomics” highlights in the spotlight for the first time
Nuremberg, November 2018
The Innovation Prize for Ergonomics – from 2019 the IGR will award this prize in various categories for special achievements in the area of ergonomics from 2019.
The aim of the Innovation Prize for Ergonomics is to raise awareness among broad target groups for the subject of ergonomics, to promote ergonomic workplace design and of course to also provide guidance in the procurement of ergonomic products and services.
The IGR has been dealing with the topic of ergonomics in various different areas for many years and the Innovation Prize for Ergonomics is regarded as being a consistent step forward in this work. It is intended that an appropriate forum be provided for special services that, on the one hand, promotes deserved public understanding but that also brings together providers and producers with purchasers and users.
The IGR primarily addresses two groups through the awarding of the prize. Firstly, manufacturers, designers or engineers who make a contribution to health through their products. And then also providers of training formats and trainers who provide pioneering services.
