McKinsey: What Matters: Prizes: a winning strategy for innovation
"In 1714, the British government offered a cash award of £20,000 to anyone who could develop a way of precisely determining a ship’s longitude. Although most felt the answer would emerge from a leading astronomer, in an early example of crowd sourcing, the prize inspired the British clockmaker John Harrison to develop the marine chronometer, which by solving the problem greatly enhanced the safety of long-distance sea voyages." nice examples of how 'prizes' have been used to incentivise innovation.
