In the Netherlands, the Galenus Medicines Award and the Galenus Research Award have been presented each year since 1992. In 2018, the MedTech Innovation Award was introduced. The MedTech Innovation Award rewards proven valuable innovations in healthcare for patient, informal caregiver and/or care provider. Which drug, which researcher or which innovative product wins the awards is determined by an independent expert jury, all with broad expertise in the disciplines to be judged. The jury members consist of scientists from various pharmaceutical and medical disciplines and representatives of (government) institutions.
