During this phase, our 12-member Pre-Screening Committee will meticulously evaluate the most impactful and award-worthy nominations, allowing us to proceed to the final round. The evaluation process will adhere to rigorous standards, ensuring scientific integrity, fairness, and transparency. Criteria such as the degree of scientific or technological advancement, the level of impact on people’s lives, as well as the project’s scale and sustainability, will be given utmost consideration.
I am pleased to inform you that a total of 1,389 nominations will be considered for the third award season. This remarkable number reflects the tireless efforts and expertise of distinguished scientists like yourselves, who have contributed to the success of the nomination process.

It is worth noting that scientists from the Americas led the nominations with 30.3%, closely followed by Asia (28.6%), Europe (24.8%), Africa (9.5%), and Oceania (6.8%).
These nominations encompass a wide range of critical disciplines, including health and wellness, energy, environment, agriculture, climate change, and multidisciplinary artificial intelligence (AI) applications.
