The magazine's young talent award is considered one of the most prestigious awards for young innovators. 19 years ago, it was launched by the US magazine MIT Technology Review. The winners of the German edition are automatically nominated for the international list of the 35 best innovators under 35 who are selected annually by the US MIT Technology Review.
