Welcome to The Tech Awards 


The Tech Awards program was launched in November 2000, and The Tech Awards Gala was held in 2001 for the first time. The concept for the awards and the  universal categories were inspired in part by the State of the Future report, published by the Millennium Project of the American Council of the United Nations University. The report recommends that award recognition is an effective way to accelerate scientific breakthrough and technological applications to improve the human condition. 

The Tech Awards honors individual, non-profit organizations and for-profit companies who are using technology to significantly improve human conditions in the categories of environment, education, health and economic development. There is also a category for young innovators. The technology used can be either a new invention or an innovative use of an existing technology.
