Vote for your favourite European inventor

Three British scientists are among 15 being put to the public vote to decide who will win a European Inventor Award.

The awards scheme is run by the European Patent Office and has a total of 15 finalists across five categories. A jury will decide the winners of each category and one finalist will receive the ‘popular prize’ as a result of the public vote.

The UK nominees are David Gow, inventor of the i-Limb prosthetics; Sophie Wilson, inventor of the ARM processor that is used in 95 per cent of smartphones; and Philipp Koehn, a lecturer at the University of Edinburgh, for mathematical algorithms behind machine translation.
