Following the adoption of the updated 2015 Work Programmes for Horizon 2020, five inducement prizes in the area of health, ICT, and environment have been announced.
Inducement prizes are a new instrument in Horizon 2020 (with only one pilot project in FP7) and aim to deliver breakthrough solutions to problems of societal interest in Europe. The target is clearly defined by the European Commission and further specified through award criteria, but without prescribing how it should be achieved.
The following prizes have been confirmed for 2015: Reducing the Mis-use of Antibiotics Prize, Food-Scanner Prize, Reduction of Air Pollution Prize, Collaborative Sharing of Spectrum Prize, Breaking the optical transmission barriers Prize
