The Altran Foundation for Innovation is inviting applications for a prize rewarding innovation in the field of water supply. The foundation is looking for projects which have improved water quality and access to water for the largest number of people.

The prize will be one year's technological support for future research and a grant of 16000 euro.

Entries for the award will be accepted from universities, research laboratories, associations, companies, and other organisations from both the private and public sectors. Candidates may apply independently or as part of a team and will be expected to be able to demonstrate the technological innovation behind their projects. If the technology is already known, entrants will have to show how their projects have improved upon its previous usage.

The technical and economical feasibility of the projects will have to be proven to the judging panel. This jury will be made up of experts in water issues from UNESCO, the European Commission, the World Water Council and major European universities.

An oral presentation for finalists is scheduled towards the end of May 1999 and the awards ceremony should be held in mid-June 1999.
