“Best Young Entrepreneur Award”


The award will be TeslaTM K20 GPU Accelerator, sponsored by NVIDIA

Award decision

We decided to give the ERSA-NVIDIA Award for Best Young Entrepreneur in two Categories:

  • Main Category
  • Student Research Category

We had two nominees with very interesting and high-level work for the Main Category. Unfortunately, they both were not qualified for the contest of Best Young Entrepreneur. These very interesting work and the top level results were achieved by big collectives with experienced researchers and managers, and not solely by young persons.

We regret to announce that we decided not to give ERSA-NVIDIA award in Main Category, as there were no nominees qualified for this category.

Finally, we decided to give one award in the category of Student Research.
