On February 18, an international competition was launchedJames Dyson Award 2016. Applications will be open until July 19, students, alumni and young inventors are invited to participate! The competition is held in 22 countries, and despite the fact that it has existed since 2004, Russia is participating only for the sixth time. Every year the number of those who wish to demonstrate their technical vision and unique ideas is increasing. Therefore, young engineers, startups and scientists wishing to work in the field of industrial design and art can take part in the competition. The main thing is that no more than four years have passed since graduation. The task for the participants is the following: to come up with a device that will solve this or that existing problem of the modern world. A project can be both a prototype and a ready-made working model, but it must be resource efficient and viable from a practical and, of course, from a commercial point of view. Applications are accepted until July 19, and already on September 8national winners will be announced. At the end of September, Dyson engineers will announce a shortlist of projects, and on October 27 the final stage of the competition will take place.
