THE ECONOMIST’S ninth annual Innovation Summit will take place in London on October 22nd. You can nominate outstanding innovators in seven categories: bioscience (which includes medical devices, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology and agriculture); energy and the environment; computing and telecommunications; “no boundaries” (which includes materials science, nanotechnology and other emerging fields); consumer products and services; business processes; and social and economic innovation, a category that recognises individuals who have pioneered novel technologies and business models that improve everyday lives.
Nominees should be people, not companies, who are responsible for an innovation that has been a proven success in the past decade. Please submit your nominations by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, giving the nominee’s name, affiliation and contact information, and a 200-word summary explaining why he or she deserves the award in a particular category. Nominations can also be submitted online at economist.com/innovationawards. The deadline is April 1st.
