You are here

To recognize an individual or team at any level who were industry employees whose technical contributions have resulted in significant advances in integrated electronic systems and large-scale integrated interoperable systems within the scope of the Society.

Nominate by Dec. 1. EXTENDED TO JANUARY 31, 2020!!


$1,500 per awardee (up to a maximum of $4,500 per award) and a plaque and certificate. In the event that there are more than three awardees, the maximum prize shall be divided equally among all awardees and each shall receive a plaque and certificate.
Single Annual Award with Multiple Recipients – Prize to be split among multiple recipients. (e.g. Multiple Authors or Multiple People/Team that collaborated on the achievement and contribution). Indicate that multiple recipients are allowable and specify if each will share the prize. Specify the number of allowable recipients and if a maximum number of recipients applies. Specify how to handle prizes for multiple recipients (e.g. should prize be split evenly for multiple recipients?) Is there a limit on the prize amount if multiple recipients? If award includes travel, specify who is entitled to travel allowance (e.g. perhaps only one of the awardees is entitled to travel allowance). Need to ensure financial commitments are maintained. Also need to ensure splitting the prize among many recipients will not diminish the value of the award.
. The award will be funded out of the annual IEEE AESS operating budget and the budget will remain net positive with inclusion of the award.
The award shall be open to individuals at any level who were industry employees and played a significant role in the technical contribution at the time of the accomplishments being recognized. Candidate need not be an IEEE AESS member. It is preferred that recipients of the IEEE AESS Industrial Innovation Award be members of IEEE. However, the IEEE Board of Governors may approve the presentation to a non-member upon the recommendation of the IEEE AESS Board of Governors.
