Argonne National Laboratory has recieved many awards for innovative technologies developed both at the lab and in association with industry partners.
Each year, R&D Magazine recognizes the 100 most technologically significant new products of the last year with awards. The competition has two purposes: to recognize innovators and organizations for outstanding practical technical developments, and to identify industrially significant technological advances. In 2011 Argonne was the recipient of four R&D 100 awards. Entries for 2012 R&D100 Awards will be due to Cynthia Wlodarski, TDC. Contact her if you have questions or concerns regarding an entry for 2011.
Discover Magazine awards are presented annually to the best technologies developed by U.S. corporate, academic, and government research centers
In its Energy 100 Awards, the Department of Energy (DOE) has honored 100 of its best scientific and technological accomplishments developed between 1977 and 2000.
Each year the Federal Laboratory Consortium (FLC), which comprises more than 600 federal laboratories and centers, recognizes federal laboratory employees who have done outstanding work in the process of transferring laboratory-developed technology.
Green Chemistry Challenge Awards
The Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Awards Program is an opportunity for individuals, groups, and organizations to compete for annual awards in recognition of innovations in cleaner, cheaper, smarter chemistry.
The Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Awards Program invites nominations that describe the technical benefits of a green chemistry technology as well as human health and environmental benefits. The Awards Program is open to all individuals, groups, and organizations, both nonprofit and for profit, including academia, government, and industry. The nominated green chemistry technology must have reached a significant milestone within the past five years in the United States (e.g., been researched, demonstrated, implemented, applied, patented, etc.).
Typically five awards are given annually to industry and government sponsors, an academic investigator, and a small business.
