The $500,000 Lemelson-MIT Prize recognizes individuals who translate their ideas into inventions that improve the world in which we live.
The Prize is awarded to outstanding mid-career inventors who have developed a patented product or process of significant value to society, which has been adopted for practical use, or has a high probability of being adopted.
Candidates must be nominated by a peer. There are three stages to the nomination process. The deadline for the Initial Submission is November 30, 2016.
