2017 R&D Awards Finalists Announced
The 2017 R&D finalists have been announced today by the R&D Awards Committee and R&D magazine. This year will mark the 55th annual R&D 100 Awards program which honors the 100 most innovative technologies of the past year. The finalists were selected by an independent panel of more than 50 judges representing R&D leaders in a variety of fields.
The R&D 100 Awards are considered the most globally prestigious recognition of invention and innovation. The awards represent 100 of the top innovations across the categories: Analytical/Test, IT/Electrical, Mechanical Devices/Materials, Process/Prototyping, and software/Services.
The committee will also honor excellence with four special recognition awards to be presented, which will be from the categories; Market Distributor services, Market Distributor Products, Corporate Social Responsibility, and Green Tech.
This year the awards will be held in Orlando and they will be expanded to include the R&D 100 Conference, where industry professionals will have the opportunity to learn first-hand about critical advances in technology and science.
The R&D 100 Awards program was first established in 1963 and has since been an integral part of the R&D Magazine brand. Past winners have consisted of sophisticated testing equipment, innovative new materials, distributive chemistry breakthrough, new biomedical products, breakthrough consumer products, and new industry technologies, academia, and government.
