Twenty five winners have been selected from among 261 entries for the
1999 European Information Society Technologies Prize. They will
receive their prizes at a special award ceremony to be held in

Each winning entry will receive 5,000 euro, but three grand prize
winners who will be announced at the award ceremony, will each
receive 200,000 euro.

Now in its fifth year, the European IST prize is increasingly a
recognition of ground-breaking innovation in IST. Past grand prize

a hard time because the standard has improved significantly this
year, both the technology and, to our great satisfaction, also the
business side as well.'
Companies with novel products possessing a high IT content and
evident market potential were invited to enter the competition. This
year's winning products range from network and data security
solutions to hand-held devices, telecom switching systems, and
interactive 3D animation engines.
All the winning products will be on show at the 'EISTP Village'
exhibition at the European IST Conference in Helsinki from 22 to 24
