Nominations to Technology Academy Finland for the Millennium Technology Prize 2014: Significant Increase on 2012, Boosted by Nominations in Life Sciences
Date:8/29/2013

HELSINKI, August 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Nominations for the sixth Millennium Technology Prize have increased by almost 20 per cent, totalling 45, with double the number of candidates in life sciences following the 2012 award to stem-cell pioneer Dr Shinya Yamanaka. Nominations for the 2014 prize closed at the end of July.  

The Millennium Technology Prize - worth over one million euros - covers all forms of technological and scientific innovations excluding military technologies. Last year the bi-annual prize was split between the fields of IT and biotech. The winners were Linus Torvalds, for his work on the Linux open source operating system, and Shinya Yamanaka, for his work developing a non-embryonic source of stem cells. Dr Yamanaka later won the 2012 Nobel Prize in medicine for this work. 

Technology Academy Finland, an independent foundation promoting scientific research and innovation, organises the awards.

The 2014 Millennium Technology Prize Winner will be announced on 9th April 2014, with a prize ceremony in Helsinki on 7th May 2014.

Dr Juha Ylä-Jääski, President and CEO of Technology Academy Finland, says:

"I am delighted to see the Millennium Technology Prize capturing the imagination of the international scientific community, with more and more applications every nomination round. More importantly, the quality and relevance are also increasing every time."

"The Millennium Technology Prize awards significant innovations. We have a very thorough vetting process. It is absolutely rigorous. It is designed to recognise innovation that advances the quality of life, and that is useful to society."

"Next year, the award ceremony is going to be different and bigger. The prize was awarded for the first time 10 years ago
