Each year, the Bell Labs Prize recognizes game-changing innovations in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

Geared toward innovative proposals that look to solve broader societal and humanistic challenges, the competition continues Nokia Bell Labs’ rich tradition of finding solutions to some of the greatest challenges facing the information and telecommunications industry.
