Golden pineapple selection – We make INSPIRE work!

Who presents the most inspiring application of INSPIRE this year? The organising committee of this years’ INSPIRE Conference has nominated six applications of INSPIRE to win a golden pineapple. You can help us decide!

The nominated presentations cover a wide range of applications. Which presented application inspires most? That is what we – together with the participants - will decide at the conference. In the plenary on Friday, the golden pineapple will be handed out.

You want a glimpse of the golden pineapple? You may have seen the video announcing the INSPIRE conference is coming to Antwerp in 2018.
