Best inventor prize instituted
The best inventor prize has been instituted in the DPRK.
Unlike February 16 Science and Technology Prize and sci-tech innovation prize for only scientists and technicians who made distinguished scientific and technological findings conducive to the development of the country’s science and technology and the economy and improvement of the people’s livelihood, the new prize will be awarded to those who designed the most valuable inventions, regardless of whether they are officials, workers, office workers or students, on the occasion of the Day of the Shining Star every year.
Three to five best inventors, who developed the cutting-edge technologies that push back the frontiers of the world’s science and made brilliant inventions conducive to the country’s development including the building of an economic giant and improvement of the people’s living standards, are to be chosen annually.
