Perché è stato istituito

"The Millennium Prize is needed because Finland today is ranked No. 1 in technology and we benefit so much from world markets in high technology so that we owe this to the world, to science, to those who make a contribution to creating prosperity through high technology, that we establish this Millennium Prize"...
(Prime Minister Paavo Lipponen)
