Younger generations play an essential role in shaping our common future, and acknowledging their potential is a must. To encourage the next generation of inventors, the European Patent Office has established the Young Inventors prize. From students to entrepreneurs, the global prize is open to innovators aged 30 and under, it will recognise problem-solving initiatives across all technical fields. Any idea, project or product in any field of technology may be proposed, as long as these initiatives use technology to solve a problem within the framework of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

Proposals can be made until 1 October 2021. The winner will receive a cash prize of €20.000, the second and third placed finalists will receive €10.000 and €5.000, respectively.
