FogScreen wins European IST Prize

FogScreen Inc, was today chosen as one of the IST Prize winners. The IST prize (http://www.ist-prize.org) is awarded for European innovations with most business potential and technical excellence among other things. The European IST Prize is organized the sponsorship and support of the Information Society Technologies Programme of the European Commission.

IST Prizes have been awarded every year since 1995, and five Finnish companies have earlier been awarded it. Among the 20 prize winners are for the first time two Finnish companies, as also F-Secure Oyj was chosen as a winner. FogScreen has been asked to participate in the IST event in Den Haag 15-17 November, where three IST Grand Prize Winners will be selected among the IST Prize Winners.

We have taken part in four competitions: InnoSuomi, VentureCup, Laval Virtual Awards and IST Prize, and we have every time been chosen either as a winner or a finalist. That implies the ingenuity of our invention. Perhaps the biggest outcome of this prize may be increased possibility for funding from the Information Society Technologies Programme in the future. We have not applied for that funding yet. ., comments Mika Herpiö, CEO for FogScreen.
