The Nokia Foundation Recognition Award celebrates individuals who have made significant and lasting contributions to the advancement of information and communications technologies. The award is granted to a single recipient every year.
The recognition, which is presented to individuals working in Finland or globally, carries with it a 10,000 € monetary prize. In addition to the financial award, Nokia Foundation promotes and facilitates the visibility of the awardee and the achievement.
While there is no formal application process available for the Nokia Foundation Recognition Award, third party independent proposals are welcome for consideration.
