EU Information Society Technology prizes

The three Grand Prize Winners (of equal merit) each receive an award of €200.000. They are:

Cavendish Kinetics for Nanomech: A nanotechnology innovation in computer storage which dramatically enhances “non-volatile” memory (memory in electronic devices which continues working when the power is turned off). Nanomech uses ultra-low power, and boasts high speed read/write characteristics at temperatures up to 200°C.
