Lemelson-MIT Program seeks nominations for 2011 awards


The Lemelson-MIT Program seeks pioneers who are making a positive impact through their inventions. We invite you to nominate colleagues or fellow innovators in your industry for the 2011 Lemelson-MIT Awards.

A winning nomination will raise awareness and recognition to both the nominator’s and the nominee’s company. We encourage nominations of individuals working in private industry, women and members of under-represented groups.
