The nominees’ scores are revised by the Iran MAKE Award expert panel at the end of the second phase to in ordrer to select and recognize the Iran MAKE Finalists.

In the third phase, the Finalists present their efforts at the annual Knowledge, Innovation and Intellectual Capital Management Conference before all members of the Iran MAKE Awardexpert panel.
