The call for nominations for the “Innovators Under 35 Asia Pacific” competition, the region’s leading award for promising young innovators, is open from now until 12th September! This year, MIT Technology Review wants to recognise more of these aspiring game changers, expanding their list from 10 to 20 recipients.
“We are expanding the list of honourees to give more innovators a chance to shine. Asia Pacific has a massive geographic reach and expanding the list will allow more scientists and entrepreneurs to be honoured with one of the most prestigious awards that will help them accelerate their careers,” said Antoinette Matthews of MIT Technology Review in Cambridge.
The annual competition has already seen 60 winners from Southeast Asia, Hong Kong S.A.R., Australia, New Zealand and Taiwan since its launch in 2014. The awardees were applauded for their work in addressing worldwide issues in various industries such as biomedicine, computing, communications, energy, materials, software, transportation, web and internet.
The winners will be showcased in the July/August issue of the MIT Technology Review magazine. Asia Pacific winners will be recognised at the EmTech Asia conference, on 25 and 26 February 2020. They will have an opportunity to meet regional stakeholders and gain recognition through media coverage.
