The leading global community of innovators, pioneers and social changemakers in Europe

Since its creation, MIT Technology Review has been publishing the list of the most brilliant Innovators Under 35 that are making exciting strides, shaping their fields and solving problems in remarkably different ways. In 2011, the magazine brought the search for talented youth to local editions in different countries within Europe. The main objective of the regional European award has been to consolidate this young European community of innovators and pioneers. 

Today, the European program lends visibility to the work of the most talented, young, technological leaders and consolidate an international innovation community. Each year, brilliant men and women are recognized for their advancements in diverse technical fields which have been extended this year to: biotechnology and medicine, computer and electronics hardware, software, Internet, artificial intelligence, robotics, telecommunications, nanotechnology and materials, energy or transportation. MIT Technology Review relies on its committee of judges, made up of experts from leading universities and companies, to select the 35 best profiles of 2018 within the European region: inventors, entrepreneurs, visionaries, humanitarians or pioneers.
