The Royal Academy of Engineering Africa Prize for Innovation
The Prize is part of the RAE’s continuing efforts to promote engineering as an enabler of international development and encourages ambitious and talented African engineers to apply their skills to develop scaleable solutions to development challenges (energy, water, sanitation, education). It promotes Africa’s innovation capacity through a call for proposals from African engineers and academic institutions and provides six months of training and mentoring for a shortlist of applicants. Following this period, finalists present their innovations before a judging panel at a high-profile event in Africa. A winner is then chosen to receive the £25,000 prize and the other finalists receive £10,000 each. The Prize operates annually over a three year period initially. The Prize is not in the second phase and this years final winner will be selected on 26th May 2016.
