Nokia starts search for Bell Labs Prize innovators

Nokia has launched the Bell Labs Prize 2020, a competition for researchers to share innovative designs that can help solve key challenges facing humanity.

Finalists will be given access to Bell Labs resources – software, hardware, systems, platforms and a set of collaborators from a variety of different disciplines and perspectives – to help improve or scale their ideas. In addition, the top three finalists will receive awards of $100,000 (grand prize), $50,000 (second place) or $25,000 (third place) to help enhance their innovations.

Marcus Weldon, Nokia’s corporate CTO and president of Nokia Bell Labs, said, “We are on the verge of an industrial revolution that will lead to unprecedented productivity gains driven by humans, machines and systems working in perfect harmony. Bell Labs researchers are defining this new future through disruptive research focused on solving the key challenges facing humanity in this next technological revolution. The Bell Labs Prize is a unique opportunity for other brilliant minds around the world to join us on this journey and be given full access to our researchers, facilities and resources so that we can collaborate on inventing the future.”
