It has been announced that Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s (MIT) Innovators Under 35 Europe Festival 2022 is to take place in Gaoth Dobhair, across the 19th and 20th of May. The events taking place across An Chúirt Hotel and the state-of-the-art Gteic remote working hub, will showcase the projects of this year’s cohort of Innovators Under 35 in Europe and honour them at gala banquet celebrating their work.
The event represents a unique opportunity to meet the shapers of our future, transforming our lives through their technological advances. The festival will bring together young European visionaries pursuing the same objective: innovation, ingenuity, and advances toward addressing the world’s most pressing challenges.
35 entrepreneurs, inventors, visionaries, pioneers and humanitarians will be selected for their outstanding technological achievements. Each year, brilliant men and women are recognised for their advancements in diverse technical fields such as biotechnology and medicine, computer and electronics, hardware, software, Internet, artificial intelligence, robotics, telecommunications, nanotechnology and materials, energy and transportation.
A committee of judges made up of experts from leading universities and companies will select the 35 best profiles of candidates. In addition to this, the competition recognizes five different categories of innovators: Inventors, Entrepreneurs, Visionaries, Humanitarians and pioneers.
