I'm not sure what to make of this - a competition to find the 'best' young academics ... Anyway, it's taken place and ten winners have now been announced.
It will be interesting to listen to the resulting broadcasts. (I suppose the most marketable ones will end up on television making various programmes about everything except the subjects they know about )
" ...each night from Tuesday 28 June, and for nine subsequent editions of Night Waves, a New Generation Thinker will talk about an idea inspired by their research."
Ha! that's starting tonight on Night Waves, 10pm.
