The Innovation Award was created by the PostEurop Operational Activities Circle (OAC), following some inspiring discussions that took place on OAC's Innovation Forum. PostEurop aims to further raise awareness amongst Members, about what Postal Operators are doing to effectively improve and innovate their services. Therefore, the objective of this Innovation Award is to foster a stronger affinity and engagement in innovation concepts, ideas and findings among our Members in a consistent and continuous manner. Through the Award, PostEurop would like to recognise Members’ accomplishments in this area.
In this first-time edition, PostEurop had the pleasure to receive from its Members twelve different submissions, all were remarkable projects with innovative solutions for the development of the Postal Sector. A jury* comprised of the following Individuals were tasked to analyse all of the submitted entries and cast their votes for the winning project.
- Botond Szebeny - PostEurop Secretary General – President
- Jürgen Lohmeyer – Chair of the OAC – Vice-President
- João Melo – Chair of the Innovation Forum – Vice-President
- Marjan Osvald – Chair of the Market Activities Circle
- Nathalie Ganzel – Chair of the Corporate Social Responsibility Activities-Circle
- Olga Zhitnikova – Chair of the Best Practices-Wider Europe Transversal
- David Pilkington – Chair of the Security Customs Transversal
*Jury Members were not allowed to vote for their own company's submission
" Looking at the quality and fresh ideas present in these projects, I am delighted to see that Postal Operators are on the right track when it comes to innovation and that they further develop their operational and business models. In a fast-evolving market, we need these Innovations. For the Jury, it was quite a difficult and challenging task to elect only one winner among all these great entries. In this first round of our new award we clearly see all participants as winners!" said Jürgen Lohmeyer, Chair of the PostEurop OAC.
We would thus like to congratulate Österreichische Post (Austria), Hellenic Post S.A.- ELTA (Greece), Lietuvos Paštas (Lithuania), Latvijas Pasts (Latvia), Malta Post p.l.c.
