The Leadership Award recognizes a business, higher education, governmental or community leader who has made a significant and substantial contribution to the creation, development and/or regional impact of a research park, science park or innovation district.

Nominations will be accepted up to Monday, August 31, 2020, 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 new Digital AURP 2020 International Conference.

AURP members may submit any number of nominations for this award, and may also nominate themselves, so don't be shy! Please be aware that individuals may be nominated for a maximum of TWO awards categories; however, an individual will be awarded in only 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.
