INNOVATION AWARD NOMINATION

The Innovation Award is given each year to the business or nonprofit institution located in a research park, science park or innovation district affiliated with one or more institutions of higher education which has brought forward one or more proprietary products, process or services which represent a substantial technology breakthrough or have the potential for a significant positive impact on the economic, health or welfare status of a broad spectrum of humanity. Candidates should not be controlled in whole or in part by an institution of higher education or governmental entity.

Nominations will be accepted up to Friday, June 14, 2019, so please be sure to submit your application on or before that date. *Individuals should contact AURP for additional submissions*

All of this year's AURP Award Winners will be honored at the AURP 2019 International Conference in Atlanta, Georgia.

AURP members may submit any number of nominations for this award, so don't be shy! Park directors are invited to submit nominations for innovative technologies developed at organizations within their Park.

Please be aware that individuals and parks may be nominated for a maximum of TWO awards categories; however, a park or individual will only be awarded in ONE category. Each submission must be for one award only.

Each item on the nomination form will be ranked by a point system.

Decisions of the Awards Committee are final, and all scores are confidential and undisclosed. The Awards Committee reserves the right to decide which awards will be given each year, and not all awards will be given every year.
