The CIUTI Prize is an award for outstanding T&I-related Master’s theses. It is awarded to the three best candidates of one year. Nominations may be submitted by any CIUTI member institute and must be supported by the respective professors’ assessments. The final decision is made by a jury within the CIUTI Board. Winners are announced at the annual General Assembly. The first ranked laureate is the recipient of a 500 Euro grant to present his/her project at the annual CIUTI Conference. In recent years, the CIUTI Prize was awarded to the following laureates:
