A company is lucky when it collects so many great initiatives and projects in the course of a year that it is really difficult for the jury to select the winner(s). This variety at WOM in 2018 even led to awards being partially shared and award money doubled in this regard.
WOM is part of the international Novanta Group, based in Bedford, USA. “Innovations that matter” is not only a slogan for us, and all companies of the technology group, but is a daily impulse for our work: At Novanta, we focus on innovations that are meaningful and enhance people’s lives.
With the European Innovation Impact Award 2017, WOM can already enjoy their second high-profile innovation award in 2017. After the success at TOP100 in the summer, WOM innovation manager Nina Spiri accepted the award at the end of September at the first ideasEurope conference, in Brussels.
Close collaboration with doctors and clinics is particularly important in the process of product innovations in medical technology. Creative ideas and further development of products have the greatest potential if they are initiated in close and direct exchange with the users from the clinic. The credo is: From the clinic – for the clinic!
