Testing Excellence Award Nominations

Testing Excellence Award Nominations

The European Testing Excellence Award is presented annually by EuroSTAR to an individual who has made a significant contribution to the field of software testing within Europe. The award seeks to promote leadership, contribution and effectiveness in testing process and implementation.

Special recognition is given to those who serve the testing community and inspire other test professionals to take a collaborative approach to advancing the craft of software testing.

The Award recognises the people who have most influenced our testing careers – colleagues, mentors, coaches, team-leaders, visionaries, hard-workers, persuasive thinkers and so on… those who help us achieve more, be more, and aim for more by continuously striving for excellence in their work. The list of previous winners includes those very people who have worked tirelessly to inspire others to collectively advance the craft of testing over the last 20 years.
