CII Innovation Awards is a six-stage funnel process:
The applicant needs to register in the Awards website by filling up a detailed form.
After registration the applicant has to fill up the initial application form which includes an abstract about the organization, and its innovations.
The applicants qualified through the Initial Application process will submit the Main Application Form.
A site visit by an assessor will be arranged to corroborate contents submitted in the main application form. The assessors will not be judging, but merely reporting their observations.
The jury assembled for this stage will evaluate the contents of main applications and determine the top 25 companies to be recommended for the Grand Jury stage.
A grand jury comprising of Indian and International experts will decide the award winning company in each of the awards category.
In the above flow the start-up category follows the same process till the main application stage. After the main application stage a separate start-up jury will be organized to decide the winner in this category.
