Award Assessment

An award committee/Jury composed of experts was used to supervise the outcomes of the assessment process during the competition. This ensures the award's credibility and that the outcomes are up to the highest standards and compatible with DGEP.

Due to the credibility and status of this award, many organisations throughout the UAE participated in it to enhance their Innovation strategy, corporate excellence, and general performance.

Under the Jury committee, teams of expert assessors are formed to assess each category. The assessment process runs in three stages:

  • Phase 1: Screen all the application files to pass each application to the selected assessors’ team of each award category.

  • Phase 2: selecting the shortlisted for interviews

  • Phase 3: Assessors will pass their results to the Award Jury to revise the result and confirm the winner of each category.
