Extended Deadline: August 31, 2018
Endowed by the Dow Chemical Company Foundation to recognize significant advances in industrial electrochemistry, the IEEE Division New Electrochemical Technology Award is the only award within the ECS Honors & Awards Program presented to an organization. The purpose of the award is to promote high quality applied electrochemical R&D and is intended to highlight novel electrochemical technology which has been practiced at a commercial scale.
The IEEE NET Award consists of a commemorative plaque (for up to six key contributors). The award will be presented at the IEEE Division business luncheon in spring 2019 and the winners will be asked to present a paper on the technology development during a division sponsored symposium. Recipients may receive travel assistance in order to attend the designated meeting. Organizations are encouraged to self-nominate and reapplication is allowed.
The award application must include:
- A designated officer must certify that all information contained in the application is non-confidential.This certification must be included at the beginning of the application, and must be the following: “I, (certifying officer, position with organization), certify that this application to the NET Award contains only non-confidential information (signature of certifying officer, date).”
- Completed electronic award form (please dedicate one member of the group as the contact person – same information for required nominee and nominator fields)
- Curriculum vitae for each contributor (combined in one document) that includes patent and publication lists
- Award criteria narrative – in no more than ten typed pages, provide specific and effective responses to the following criteria:
