New this year will be the Best of the Academy Award, which will recognize—with cash prizes—the best work carried out at Brazilian universities and, in some way, will favor companies that have implemented Internet of Things (IoT) and radio frequency identification (RFID) technologies.

The IoT RFID Best of the Academy Award will give 1,500 Brazilian real ($403) for first place, 1,000 real ($268) for second place and 500 real ($134) for third place. The award will be conferred by entrepreneurs from companies associated with ABRFID, who act as manufacturers, developers and systems integrators of equipment, tags and solutions involving RFID and the Internet of Things (IoT). Registration will run until Aug. 10, and the awards will take place on Aug. 28 at the Expo Center Norte in São Paulo, at the LATAM Retail Show's Central Arena.
