“We’re asking the UK public to vote for which of the six areas should have top priority, and be the focus of the Longitude Prize 2014,” says Martin Rees, who is leading the 2014 Longitude Prize. The Longitude Prize is a £10 million science and technology prize developed with Nesta and the Technology Strategy Board. Potential award topics include combating antibiotic resistance and water shortages.  Lord Rees commented that these problems “demand fresh thinking; we need to galvanise a new generation of innovators to address them.”  For more information, please see here.
