Technology Academy Finland (TAF) is accepting nominations for the 2018 Millennium Technology Prize through the Department of Science and Technology (DOST).
The Prize is worth One Million Euros.

General principles of the Millennium Technology Prize are as follows:

• Awarded to disruptive technological innovations that enhance the quality of people’s lives in a sustainable manner.

• The innovations have been applied in practice and are delivering extensive change now and in the future.

• The innovations stimulate further cutting edge research and development in science and technology.

The Prize highlights the extensive impacts of science and innovation on society, even on humanity at large.

The Millennium Technology Prize is thus not intended as a reward for lifetime achievement, and also highlights the Finnish practical and solution-focused mindset – one of the greatest strengths of Finland – to the whole world.

Candidates for the Prize are accepted from across the world and all fields of technology excluding military technology. Nominations for the Prize can be made by science academies, universities, research institutes and industrial organizations.

The prize is awarded every second year, the next time on May 22, 2018. The nomination period for the 2018 prize closes on July 31, 2017.
