The Superconductor Industry Lifetime Achievement Award of the year is awarded for work in both high- and low-Tc superconductor technologies. All areas of applications are included, from established industries such as MRI to emerging ones such as power devices and communications.
The award reflects a vision that strong international collaboration is essential to the commercial success of advanced technologies. Further, it advocates that both local and global markets are drivers for investment in R&D, and the role of governments and institutions in shaping and catalyzing these markets though advocacy, legislation, private investment, and public funding should be considered. As such, the award is fully international, and nominations are considered from every nation with science and industry in superconductivity.
The Lifetime Achievement Award was last presented in 2006 to Dr. James Daley, who retired at the end of that year as head of the DOE’s HTS Program in the Office of Electricity. Dr. Daley is recognized as a champion of cooperative partnerships between government and industry and for his strong support for research and development. Dr. Daley was also noted for his leadership at a series of HTS Wire Development Workshops.
DEADLINE: Please submit your nomination June 1, 2011. Nominations may be submitted by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
