Now accepting National Medal of Technology and Innovation nominations

USPTO is seeking nominations for the 2020 National Medal of Technology and Innovation (NMTI). The NMTI is the nation’s highest honor for technological achievement, bestowed by the president of the United States.
The medal is awarded to individuals, teams, and companies for their outstanding contributions to the nation’s economic, environmental, and social well-being through the development and commercialization of technological products, processes and concepts, technological innovation, and strengthening of the nation’s technological workforce.
Anyone can nominate for the NMTI by submitting the online nomination form and letters of support. Applicants must complete nominations before midnight ET, April 3. Nominations of candidates from traditionally underrepresented groups are encouraged.
For more information, and to register for a February 26 webinar about the nomination process, please visit the NMTI webpage on the USPTO website.
