Rolex Awards for Enterprise 2010 Young Laureates Programme

Marrakech, Morocco

The Rolex Awards for Enterprise announced the Jury today for the 2010 Young Laureates Programme, which “enables visionary young men and women to tackle the most pressing issues facing our world”. The Laureates receive financial support for two years and publicity through international media coverage to launch a new idea or scale up an existing project in one of five areas: science and health, applied technology, exploration, the environment and cultural preservation. The nearly 200 candidates, who are between 18 and 30 years old and come from around the world, were invited to submit proposals that outline the social or scientific benefits of their work.

I will join the other nine members of the jury in Geneva next March to select the five winners, who will be announced in April 2010. My fellow jury members come from Brazil, India, Mexico, Singapore, Spain, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom and United States.


  1. Hello Gary! Nice blog!!! I am still very interested in your projects. There are our future!
    I hope to see you in GVA when you come in March. Rolex is 5 minutes from my place! And I would be very happy if you could see Ella.
    (I would have loved to work for the Rolex Awards for Enterprise: I would have joined my background in watchmaking and my personal thought. But I never succeed in contacting them! Do you know then well?)

  2. Hi Gary, I agree with Aude, this is a great blog! The first five winners of the Rolex Young Laureates Programme have been announced today - you can find out more information and video content from the winners here:

  3. I know nothing about these
    watches. Most of them are $300 or higher. There is only one
    at $200. What is it that I must look for to get him a watch he will
    treasure and be able to use for the next 20 years? What is it that
    makes this one $200 watch different from those at $300 or more?....
    If only everything were as simple as using
    Generic Viagra

  4. Its nice to travel specially when you're with your friends or love one, and also its important to have a place where you could stay, so here's the perfect spot for you.
