Recipient of the lifeworks award is Istok Jerman Kuželički from Kolektor Etra.
Due to all measures for prevention of the spread of Covid 19, this year`s presentation of awards was somewhat compromised in content and performance. Although the traditional conference on innovative activity did not take place, the virus could not stop the commission from evaluating all innovations and rewarding the best among them. According to the Management, it is the content that matters most. They are very proud of the results. And of the great quantity of ideas and innovations. The breakthrough ideas/innovations are recognized and honored also outside Kolektor.
Congratulations to all award winners!
