Each year, the Lemelson-MIT Program awards a $500,000 prize to a mid-career inventor whose work has had a positive social, cultural and economic impact. The objectives of the Lemelson-MIT Prize are to: (1) recognize outstanding mid-career inventors, (2) celebrate individuals who enhance economic opportunity and community well-being on a global scale, (3) foster their work and the potential for commercialization, and (4) promote role models who can inspire young people to pursue creativity. Submit a nomination by Nov. 30.
