WHAT IS THE AWARD?

HOW ARE WINNERS SELECTED?

Merz Aesthetics does not exert influence over the selection of the submitted abstracts; its role solely entails a review for potential patent infringements and assessing the validity of submissions.

 

All valid submissions will be evaluated, and the finalists will be shortlisted by an independent international expert panel by the following criteria:

(1) level of innovation, (2) practical relevance/potential,

(3) methodology, (4) at the panel’s discretion.

 

The finalists per each category are asked to produce a short video about their work. A professional video team will edit and cut the videos and publish them on an external online platform from Merz Aesthetics Medical Affairs. The published video will be rated by the expert panel (50%) along with the aesthetic community (50%) by voting. The finalist with the highest score will be declared the winner of the

Innovation Forum 2024 per category.
