Nesta, the UK’s Innovation foundation,  with the Technology Strategy Board as a launch funding partner have highlighted these six major challenges facing the world today and created an opportunity to vote to decide which challenge should win the £10million prize fund. A new prize for a new century, with a £10 million fund to help solve the problem.
