Your idea, our prize: The EDISON

What is most likely to advance your idea is qualified feedback. That is what we offer with our EDISON Idea Contest. Simply use it to get helpful feedback from experienced jurors and, ideally, to win a prize.

(Submission is always possible from December to March).

The EDISON: Upper Austria's prize for ideas in technology, innovation and creative industries. As well as ideas from students. What distinguishes our competition from all others in Austria is a 2-stage process.

In the first round of the competition, the jury decides on a selection of particularly exciting project ideas. In the second round, the authors of these ideas prepare for their presentations in the finals with professional support.

Therefore, everyone who submits an idea has something to gain from EDISON: The feedback of a competition with reputation and - in the second stage - excellent coaching. In addition, media and contacts in the extensive network of the EDISON partners. And, last but not least, prize money of € 21,500 in total.

The conditions of participation:

  • Company / residence in Upper Austria
  • Already created enterprises, may not have gained any income yet.
  • Upper Austrian students
  • Re-submission possible if the idea has not yet been awarded an EDISON.
  • We do not organize the EDISON alone, but in cooperation with TECH HARBOR, Kunstuniversität Linz and CREATIVE REGION.
