CCIS awards for innovation at the national level are the highest national accolades for the innovative achievements of Slovenian companies and other organisations, and thus promote innovation in Slovenia.

With its innovation, the development of a mid-drive system for e-bikes, Domel won the highest award, the gold medal.


This innovation is the fruit of cooperation with the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and the result of technological researchers looking for the limits of the possible; with their knowledge, the team has won recognition in one of the most demanding niche markets.
