Established 54 years ago, the Research & Development Council of New Jersey has sustained its core mission of advancing research and development in New Jersey through a variety of initiatives, one in particular being the recognition of outstanding R&D work done in the state.
The Council annually honors the most exceptional efforts of scientists and inventors, along with their organizations, with the awarding of the prestigious Edison Patent Award.
The Edison Patent Award may be awarded in several categories, depending upon the particular
year’s nomination lot; note that depending upon submissions, more than one patent award may be awarded per category.
In 2015, nearly 50 inventors and 13 New Jersey companies and universities were recognized at this celebration. To see last year’s honorees, click here.
