AWARDING OF THE PRIZE

--

At the end of the participation period, 31/12/2021, the materials will be reviewed and evaluated by an independent and technical jury, composed of at least three people and established by Pordenone Fiere Spa in collaboration with API – Associazione Piscicoltori Italiani (Italian Fish Farmers Association) and FAO – United Nations Organization for Food and Agriculture and AMA – Associazione Mediterranea Aquacoltori (Mediterranean Association of Aquaculturists), as well as accessible on page ”AQUAFARM 2022 R&D AWARD”  of the website www.aquafarmexpo.it.

The jury will anonymously analyse the entries and will decide, based on the participation parameters below, a ranking:

For the research:

  • Originality of the research topic;
  • Relevance with respect to the world economic, health and environmental situation;
  • Applicability of the research results (also based on costs and timing);
  • Usefulness of the results for the purpose of optimizing production;
  • Scalability (eg: better if applicable to several species instead of just one, to several plants rather than to plants with over specific characteristics).

For start-ups:

  • Originality of the research topic;
  • Integration of different technologies
  • Economic sustainability: cost advantages compared to solutions already on the market or demonstration of business cost savings thanks to the implementation of the solution in the industry
  • Usefulness of the solution in order to optimize production
  • Scalability (eg: better if applicable to several species instead of just one, to several plants rather than to plants with over specific characteristics).

A score between 1 and 10 will be assigned to each parameter: the total sum of the votes will determine the final ranking.

The selection of the finalists will be determined exclusively by the judgment expressed by the above mentioned jury, which will meet by 14 January 2022: the decisions taken by the same will be unquestionable and unassailable.

In case of a tie, the papers will be compared and reviewed.

By January 21, 2022, the first 3 classified will be notified by email (using the address provided during registration), of the selection results.
Candidates must confirm acceptance of the participation proposal, by sending to basei@fierapordenone.it:
– copy of a valid document and tax code;
– telephone number;
– declaration of acceptance.
by January 26, 2022, under penalty of exclusion from the Contest.
