2020 Millennium Technology Prize: Call for Nominations, 1 April – 31 July 2019#

On behalf of Technology Academy Finland TAF, we have the honour of inviting Your organization to nominate candidates for the 2020 Millennium Technology Prize. The Millennium Technology Prize is one million euros, and awarded every two years by TAF to an individual or to a team of any nationality. The State of Finland, academic institutions and high-tech industries established the Prize in 2004 as Finland’s tribute to innovations for a better life. The Patron of the Prize is the President of the Republic of Finland. The 2020 Millennium Technology Prize will be awarded on 26 May 2020.

The Millennium Technology Prize highlights the impact of science and innovations on the well-being of mankind and society. The Prize is awarded for groundbreaking technological innovations that benefit millions of people around the world. Until today, three innovators – Frances Arnold, Shinya Yamanaka and Shuji Nakamura – have first been awarded the Millennium Technology Prize and later the Nobel Prize. This indicates the significance of frontier research for creating innovations that greatly improve peoples’ lives. We are proud to present all Millennium Technology Prize Winners at https://taf.fi/millennium-technology-prize/winners.
