NVIDIA is calling on global researchers to submit their innovations for the NVIDIA Global Impact Award — an annual grant of $150,000 for groundbreaking work that addresses the world’s most important social and humanitarian problems.
It will go to a researcher or institution using NVIDIA technology to achieve breakthrough results with broad impact. Among the many areas this includes are disease research, drug design & development, medical imaging, energy efficiency, natural disaster response and cybersecurity.
Researchers, non-profit institutions or universities anywhere in the world may apply. NVIDIA technology should play a significant role in enabling the project. Multiple submissions from institutions and researchers are allowed.
If you wish to put forward a nomination or encourage a contact to do so, forms may be downloaded here. Nominations are due Oct. 31, 2014. Finalists will be announced in mid-February. The award will be presented at GTC 2015.
