Registration: This is how it works

In general, the prize is awarded to an individual or a small group. You can, however, accept the prize for a company or a research institution. You enter your proposal into the database at by 31 July 2019. You may revise all details until the deadline.

Please carefully select a special prize for which you are applying and indicate if you come from Baden-Württemberg. This will also give you the chance to win the lucrative special and state prizes. If you are primarily interested in the state prize, you are welcome to enter your contribution in German. Please use the English entry forms to do so.

Your proposal, German or English, will be judged by the Baden-Württemberg jury. The expert team receives all proposals without personal data, so that equal opportunities are guaranteed. The organizers also guarantee full discretion. All jury members will be sworn in by a notary and commit themselves to secrecy. As a participant in the country, you will also benefit from services specially tailored to your needs, such as support with patenting, marketing and financing.     


Think of patenting

The submitted data is protected against unauthorized access by third parties. The persons and experts entrusted with the evaluation of the submitted proposals have agreed to keep the data strictly confidential. Only at the award ceremony in Munich will the award-winning proposals be made public in consultation with the winners (only!). In this case, we recommend patent protection; otherwise, the publication will void all legal claims. You will receive support from your Chamber of Commerce and Industry. This offer is not only addressed to the winner but also to all other participants.

Despite all efforts to keep the contents of the submitted ideas strictly confidential, the organizer of the Galileo Masters nevertheless assumes no liability for damages that may arise through the accidental disclosure of parts of the idea.
