However, only the best applicants will be nominated for the next evaluation round and thus get the opportunity to contest for winning the futureSAX Idea Competition 2018. The winners will be awarded at the futureSAX Innovation Summit  in the DDV stadium on June 25, 2018. 

As diverse as the economic structure in Saxony is the range of the submitted applications. This is represented in the allocation of industries and regions. With 33 percent, the information and communication technology is most prominent this year, but also services and life science with around 13 percent show that there is a lot of innovation potential in these sectors.
