Bell Labs Prize - Apply by July 15, 2014

I am writing to announce that Bell Labs <,27840440,27874a97> is launching a program to ‘open our doors’ to innovators in the field of information and communications networking. Specifically, we have created the Bell Labs Prize <,27840440,27874a98>, a competition that will give any researcher, in participating countries around the globe, the chance to introduce their ideas to the world, and collaborate with world-renowned Bell Labs researchers. The Bell Labs Prize winners will take home cash awards worth as much as $100,000, and the chance to further develop their ideas at Bell Labs, where possible.

Broadly, we are seeking 10x game-changing proposals in the field of information and communications technologies and related software systems and applications. The competition is open to anyone in one of the participating countries, who ‘owns’ an idea and meets the eligibility requirements.
Three prize winners will receive an award of $100,000 (grand prize), $50,000 (second place) or $25,000 (third place). Additionally, through the process, Bell Labs may engage with other contest participants as part of the company’s recruitment investment in top talent. The deadline to enter the contest is Tuesday, July 15, 2014. For more information, visit the Bell Labs Prize web site <,27840440,27874a99>.

Please share this with your most innovative students and other academic colleagues, and post the attached ‘flyer’ at your institution. We look forward to hearing their ideas that have the potential to change the way we connect, collaborate and communicate with people, places and possessions (things).

Best Regards,
Marcus Weldon
President of Bell Labs Alcatel-Lucent
