Science Based Incubator Awards


Since 2002, The Technopolicy Network and the Centre for Strategy and Evaluation Services (CSES) organize the Best Science Based Incubator Awards. This globally leading award is based on a benchmarking study by CSES and an expert jury evaluation. In addition to the Best Science Incubator Award several other prizes are awarded, such as Best New Incubator. The winners are announced during an award ceremony at the Science Based Incubation Conference & Awards.
