The search for the next Millennium Technology Prize Laureates continues!
Nomination period: 14 January - 31 July 2013
"Ground breaking innovations in medicine, computing, physics and other fields are transforming people’s lives at an extraordinary pace, yet great achievements do not always receive the high profile they deserve. Prizes have a unique role to play in bringing scientists and scientific developments to the attention of investors, companies, schools, politicians and the general public.
During its life the Millennium Technology Prize has been awarded to six Grand Prize Winners, all of whom are now recognised internationally for changing our lives for the better. The winners of the prize are not always household names, but many of them have gone on to even greater achievements.
In delivering the Millennium Technology Prize, we at Technology Academy Finland pride ourselves in an international selection committee with a broad scientific, geographical and gender spread of world-class scientists, who can independently select the innovations most likely to benefit mankind by tackling our environmental, health and other technological challenges.
As long as science prizes are rigorous and judged by scientific experts — and as long as they earn the respect of the scientific community — they can indeed stimulate innovation by attracting funding and public interest. Top quality nominations are the basis for all that the Millennium Technology Prize achieves, and we look forward to receiving them once again."
