The selection process
Each year, LiU Innovation chooses a selection committee with three members, two of them external and one from LiU, and a non-voting chair. The selection committee selects the winner preferably by reaching agreement. If this is not possible, voting is used, with the drawing of lots used as a final resort in the event of equal (non-zero) votes being received. If more than eight candidates are nominated, LiU Innovation reserves the right to select eight of them to be passed to the selection committee. If necessary, LiU Innovation can make additions to the nomination citations for candidates.
