As part of the SOLUTRANS trade show (from 16 to 20 November 2021), the I-nnovation AWARDS (formerly the Innovation Prize) panel of judges met on 28 October at the French Bodywork Federation (FFC), to select the most innovative applicants for this 2021 event. Out of nearly 80 valid applications, 21 innovations were selected, 7 in the Bodywork Manufacturers category, 7 in the Parts Manufacturers category and 7 in the new "Digital AWARD" category.

The Bronze, Silver and Gold winners will be announced at the official awards ceremony on Tuesday 16 November at 7pm, during an exceptional evening event at the Groupama Stadium in Lyon.

From now on, a "Joseph LIBNER Special Prize", in homage to the former Chairman of the FFC, will be awarded to a company for an innovation with a particular environmental dimension, in the Bodywork Manufacturers and Part Manufacturers categories.

The I-nnovation AWARDS panel of judges is made up of technical managers from industrial vehicle manufacturers, recognised professionals from the industry (transport partner federations, competitive hubs, etc.) and specialist journalists.

These experts deliberated and selected the best innovative solutions in the different categories.

This year, the panel of judges emphasised the very high level of the applications submitted, a sign of the undeniable dynamism of the industry. In particular, they were presented with 24 world or European advance previews and nearly 40 patents. In particular, the panel praised the commitment of the candidates, who were keen to highlight their innovations focused on the safety of vehicles and people, connectivity, reduced fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, efficiency, noise reduction, and more.
