Nesta, the UK’s Innovation foundation, with the Technology Strategy Board as a launch funding partner have highlighted these six major challenges facing the world today and created an opportunity to vote to decide which challenge should win the £10million prize fund. A new prize for a new century, with a £10 million fund to help solve the problem.
The competition has been named the Longitude Prize 2014, after the challenge set in 1714 of how to pinpoint a ships location at sea by knowing its longitude.
