IEEE AESS Industrial Innovation Award Nomination Form
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.
The award is 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. Candidates need not be an IEEE AESS member.
Remember this is a technical achievement award, program management successes are recognized by the Management Society. There have been some challenges in recent years questioning if we had the “real” contributors, especially since successful “complex systems” tend to have many fathers. That’s why the endorsement letters are so critical. They establish the validity of the individual(s) that are key, those that without them the success of the “system” would have been highly unlikely. It is not a condition that any awardees should have been sole or original inventor or developer, “significant contribution” of a specific nature is the key criterion
