This year is a record year in terms of awarded stars and special “Judges’ Top Choice” commendations for Innov’Space: 48 innovations have been awarded by the jury, according to a press release from SPACE, Europe's largest annual livestock trade fair. 

The list of award-winners reflects the diversity of SPACE exhibitors and the challenges in animal farming, including solutions to ensure health safety, improve working conditions, preserve the environment and its natural resources.

The commitment demonstrated by companies choosing SPACE to showcase their innovations remains very strong, with 117 applications this year.

Innov’Space is a remarkable showcase for innovation for all animal production actors. It is the reference for innovation in agriculture, according to organisers of the French trade fair. For the awarded companies, it is a unique recognition of their capacity for innovation and their remarkable level of expertise. They benefit from a visibility and a promotion that make them references for all the participants of the Show, and more widely for the entire animal farming world.

The applications submitted to Innov’Space were carefully examined by a multi-disciplinary jury of 60 members. This jury, independent of SPACE, consists of engineers from Chambers of Agriculture, specialists from technical institutions, INRAE (National Institute of Agricultural Research) and INPI (National Institute of Industrial Property), livestock veterinarians, farmers and specialist press journalists. 

The applications were rigorously examined with the objective of identifying the innovations that offer new functionalities to livestock farmers or sectors. In addition to a solid technical and scientific file, the innovation must benefit farmers or the agricultural sector in order to be eligible for an award.

Innov'Space will celebrate its 30th anniversary in 2025. SPACE takes place in Rennes, France from September 17 to 19.
