Global Research Awards Assessment Process

In the evaluation the jury considers the research results as well as the research process. The evaluation criteria are:

  • Research results achieved
  • Originality and innovation
  • Theoretical foundation

For more information, please download the brochure at the bottom of the page.

The international basis of the IPMA Global Research Awards allows that awards applicants are permitted to submit evidence in their local language. You may translate any evidence you would like to submit on behalf of yourself or your project in your local language. The maximum number of pages of the submission will then be increased in equal amount to the number of pages of the translation at no penalty to the applicant.
