Innovation transcends borders, breaks paradigms and offers great opportunities to improve the quality of life of human beings, which is why Universidad Panamericana has created the UP Innovation Awards to recognize, select and reward new products and/or services that will benefit humanity. With the support of companies leaders in their field, we seek to facilitate and consolidate the marketing of the winning projects.

This call is open to all entrepreneurs, researchers in Mexico or abroad, and to SMEs from the community in general, who are working in any of the seven thematic areas and who are within the three award categories.

UP Innovation Awards is offering prizes in seven different thematic areas for projects fitting into three distinct categories.
