Now, we seek to expand the community to everyone under 35 years of age who is developing emerging technologies or making innovative uses of existing ones in the European Union.
We aim at connecting remarkable minds and projects in an effort to escalate the impact of their achievements. In Europe, more than one hundred Innovators from France, Germany, Belgium, Poland and Spain already form part of this global community.
Nominations are open until March 5th through the following link:
Those candidates from Germany or Italy interested in taking part in the competition should write to firstname.lastname@example.org (for German candidates) or apply directly through the Italian edition of MIT Technology Review
Following the closing of nominations, a jury composed by experts and editors of MIT Technology Review will select the best 35 proposals. The winners will be presented at the awards ceremony that will take place in Paris on September 14th.
During the ceremony, we aim to gather the community of Innovators Under 35 and welcome the new generation of leaders and innovators of the future.
