The Millennium Technology Prize is awarded for innovations that enhance the quality of life on our planet. In the spirit of that competition, Aalto University and the Technology Academy Finland (TAF) are, for the second time, running the Millennium Youth Prize competition for innovators who are 19 years of age or younger.

Similar to last year, Aalto University professors give four global challenges related to sustainability and participants are asked to present viable solutions to these.

Challenges given by Aalto University professors below. (English subtitles can be added in the videos from the settings button.)

Participants can send their solutions as either written reports, videos, prototypes or any combination of these. The assessment criteria are scientific rigour, creativity, innovativeness and viability.

The first prize is €5 000, second prize is €3 000 and the third prize is €2 000.
