The Mondialogo Engineering Award invites engineering students in developing and developed countries to form local groups and international teams to work together to develop project proposals that address the United Nations Millennium Development Goals , proposals to improve the quality of life in the developing world. Each international team should consist of two (or more) student teams.

The Award seeks to encourage student engineers to develop project proposals, as a design exercise that addresses some of the major challenges of the 21st century. The eradication of poverty, promotion of sustainable development and responding to climate change are key concerns of the Mondialogo Engineering Award.

Participating students are asked to respond to these most pressing challenges of today's world, and to develop engineering solutions and technologies that will help to reduce poverty and address basic needs, enhance sustainable development in such areas as water supply and sanitation, mitigate the negative impacts of climate change and adapt to changing climatic conditions

Prize money:

The Mondialogo Engineering Award consists of a total amount of € 300,000 , MEA Gold Awards of € 15,000, MEA Silver Awards of € 10,000 and MEA Bronze Awards of € 5,000. It is intended that these awards be used as "seed funding" to help develop and initiate the proposed projects.

Over the past four years, there have been two rounds of the Mondialogo Engineering Award , in 2004/05 and 2006/07. The Mondialogo Engineering Award has inspired several thousand engineering students around the world to cooperate in international partner teams to develop project proposals, sharing their knowledge and expertise and thereby promoting intercultural dialogue between countries around the world.
