Each vote cast by an institution for its own innovation receives 50% of the points normally attributed.
The rate will remain confidential and only banking and payment institutions will be awarded.

Originality: the uniqueness of the idea in the marketplace and its potential as a game changer
Impact: the innovation’s capacity to generate a superior, long-term competitive edge and a significant return on investment
