Now it's time to review all your ideas to find the one that is innovative, practical, realizable and brings Meteorology forward in society!

The Harry Otten prize will recognize ideas that will enable a clearly innovative contribution of meteorology to society, and that are not already being developed elsewhere.

Individuals and groups up to three persons can participate in the competition. The first submission can be as short as three pages.

Applications for the 2013 competition are possible from 15th October 2012 until 10th March 2013.

The first prize round was in 2012 and will be rewarded from 2013 onwards every two years. The winner of the competition will receive €25,000 in cash and it is also foreseen to grant a lower amount to the second and third prize. Winners will retain full rights to their ideas but when wanted help is offered to realize the winning ideas.
