The World Technology Awards
..

World Technology Awards in association with The Economist and Booz.Allen & Hamilton
About the Awards The World Technology Awards have been created to honour those individual leaders or, at times, co-equal teams from across the globe who most contribute to the advance of emerging technologies of all sorts for the benefit of business and society. We especially seek to honour those innovators who have done work recently which has the greatest likely future significance and impact over the long-term... and who will likely become or remain "key players" in the technological drama unfolding in coming years.

These awards are not necessarily "lifetime achievement" awards, nor are they particularly for individuals whose work of greatest signficance was less than recent. These are about those individuals whose work today will, in our opinion, create the greatest "ripple effects" in the future... in both expected and unexpected ways.
