Nominet Trust invites ‘tech for good’ nominations

Social technology funder Nominet Trust is inviting nominations for its third annual NT100 – a celebration of 100 of the world’s most inspiring tech projects that are driving social change.

Last year’s NT100 honoured projects large and small, from Google’s smart contact lens that monitors blood sugar levels, to New York-based E-nable’s 3D printed prosthetics, and Coconut Surveillance, an app that monitors malaria cases in Zanzibar (project officers in training pictured).

The final NT100 will be selected by a group of industry partners from the social and tech sectors. It will be published in December.

Vicki Hearn, director of Nominet Trust, said: “We have had a fantastic response to the NT100 for the last two years, which we are looking to build on this year as we extend its reach with the help of some very exciting partners.”

She added that she’d like to see more nominations for ‘tech for good’ projects in emerging markets and from developing nations.

“We look forward to the contribution that this year’s new projects can make,” Hearn continued.

To choose your favourite tech projects, go to Nominet Trust’s nomination page, where you can vote for projects already in the Nominet Trust Social Tech Guide or for new ones of your choosing. Nominations close on September 30th.
