The SZFI Applied Research Award rewards high-standard R&D carried out at the FK SZFI. The entries are evaluated by a jury of three experts working in applied research. The following factors are taken into account at the evaluation:
- The scientific and technical level of R&D (the measuring system, the equipment, tools, methods and technology) and the effective use of the financial resources dedicated to implementing it.
- Applying novel solutions and publishing them as patents or articles.
- The practical usefulness and usability of the developed equipment, tools and methods.
- The usefulness of the work for the SZFI, increasing the good reputation of the institution.
The award is presented once a year, at the Festival of Hungarian Science.
