Each year this scheme sets out to reward young innovators whose work brings together technology, innovation and creativity, to provide effective responses to the major challenges facing our society today. “Innovators Under 35” is the first global community of innovators, pioneers and social change-makers.
Applications will be accepted until 16 February. In order to participate, prospective entrants must have French nationality, be aged under 35, and be working on technological projects.
After the close of applications, a panel of experts from MIT Technology Review will review the entries and select 10 Innovators Under 35 for 2016, as well as awarding two special titles: Innovator of the Year and Social Innovator.
For the 2016 awards, for the first time in history, the community of European Innovators Under 35 will select three European winners.
To round off the 2016 awards, the European Innovators Under 35 community will meet at the European Summit to address key problems, in the form of challenges, and to suggest solutions to them.
