Global Competition for Innovators 2018 (Up to $100K in Prizes)

The Bell Labs Prize is a competition for innovators from participating countries around the globe that seeks to recognize proposals that ‘change the game’ in the field of information and communications technologies by a factor of 10, and provides selected innovators the unique opportunity to collaborate with Bell Labs researchers to help realize their vision.

A prestigious competition that aims to provide a unique opportunity for innovators to change the world with big ideas, following in the great tradition of Bell Labs. If you have a 10x game-changing idea and are interested in developing it with leading Bell Labs researchers, you have come to the right place. In the second stage, 10 finalists will be selected to compete for the 3 prizes at an event scheduled in the late Autumn, in front of a panel of renowned experts and industry leaders.


They are looking for game-changing and impactful ideas that have the potential to change the way we live, work and communicate with each other.
