The Silver Award of $7,500 in products went to the Universidad Nacional de Quilmes of Argentina and the submission by Fernando Alvira for the implementation of an interferometric spectrometer for Raman spectroscopy as a tool to diagnose Alzheimer's Disease.

The Bronze Award of $5,000 in products was awarded to Boston University and the submission by Daniel Leman for the design of a lightweight, 3D-printed, wireless-capable microscope for single photon fluorescence imaging in awake, behaving animals.

In Europe, the Gold Award of €7,000 ($8,000) in products went to the Universität Innsbruck of Austria and the submission by Thorsten Schwerte for the disruption of host targeting in blood feeding flight insects by dynamic light pattern projection in dark and light rooms.

The Silver Award of €5,000 ($5,800) in products was presented to Delft University of Technology of the Netherlands and the submission by Hai Gong for the development of a smart optical malaria diagnostic instrument, deployable to low-resource settings.

The Bronze Award of €3,000 ($3,500) in products was awarded to the Justus-Liebig-Universität Gießen of Germany and the submission by Florian Bayer for the development of a four-fold digital light processing projection system with filtered high power LEDs to investigate previously inaccessible fundamental mechanisms of signal processing of the human retina.
