- Hidden champions from the whole world who pursue scalable projects
- Initiatives with local impact or wider outreach with the potential to become role models for other projects or scientists
- New ways of communication and cooperation with the goal of empowering scientists to engage with public audiences

The winner will get the chance to pitch their project on the grand stage of the Falling Walls Conference to an audience of 750 global leaders, decision-makers, and international media representatives, and 20 finalists will win a trip to the awards in Berlin.
Deadline 30 June.
