This is where stories of innovation will be shown. Some of them will be stories from all over the world about cool and smart innovation projects or solutions. Some will be from important work done at the Innovation Embassies.

We celebrate Amazing Innovations because these are the innovations that make a difference and has real value.

They can be anything from a low energy lighting system to smart clothing, a way to heat food without using fuel or a new way of gathering water for drinking. But it can also be events or unique gatherings that have lead to the creation of amazing innovations.

What amazing innovations have in common is they

  • combine the old and the new resulting in surprising solution or story
  • they will often define a new way of doing something
  • they make a sustainable impact and often make resources last longer
  • there is a business case surrounding them to ensure distribution
  • empower the user either by making something easier or by enabling them to now be able to do something, they previously couldn’t.

That’s a tall order for most of us but this is what we aspire to and what inspires us.

To submit your amazing innovation story, please write to submit (at)
