Efma and Accenture believe that the key to success in today’s challenging markets is to develop an innovation-committed DNA to be fostered by sharing successful experiences and new ideas.
The Efma–Accenture Innovation in Insurance Awards was launched in 2016 to identify and award the most innovative projects in the insurance sector. The awards also aim to highlight and share worldwide best practices that will help accelerate the transformation of insurance as we know it for the better.
In its first year 224 innovations were submitted for consideration.
The Awards process is as follows:
- Nomination process
