VICTOR HUGO once famously remarked: “No power on earth can resist an idea whose time has come”.

We are inviting the scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs and visionaries who are building the “Industries of the Future”, to better understand where new wealth will be created, whilst also examining the impact on the economy and society.

The World’s Top 50 Innovators 2019 will take place at the Royal Society. Founded in 1660, the Royal Society is the oldest scientific academy in continuous existence in the world. The leading scientific lights of the past four centuries can all be found among its Fellows including: Isaac Newton, Benjamin Franklin, Charles Darwin, Albert Einstein, Sir Tim Berners-Lee, Elon Musk and beyond. To be a Fellow of the Royal Society (FRS) is a recognition of eminence in scientific, engineering and other disciplines. It has some 1,400 members today, who include more than 80 Nobel Prize winners.

A thorough search will be conducted to identify the most interesting and impactful innovators from across the world. We are specifically interested in companies that have done a “world-first” in the technology areas below over the last 18 months.

Come and join CEOs, tech entrepreneurs, scientists, investors and media, from across the world for one of the most significant conferences on innovation in 2019.
