MNT-for-Aerospace Visionary Awards

Montreal, Quebec, CANADA | Posted on July 3rd, 2007

CANEUS is pleased to announce the "MNT-for-Aerospace" Visionary Awards, for exceptional individuals who have made important contributions in the arena of transitioning Micro and Nano Technologies (MNT) from the laboratory into aerospace systems. As the membership of CANEUS has found, overcoming the tremendous challenges facing the transition of emerging MNT concepts to system level products often requires a special motivation and drive by individuals who can serve as an inspiration to our community. The Visionary Awards aim to recognize these talents and accomplishments, which are very synergistic with the overall CANEUS mission.

Four "MNT-for-Aerospace" Visionary Awards to be presented include the Smalley Medal for Excellence in Nanotechnology for Aerospace, the CANEUS Medal for Excellence in Microtechnology forAerospace, the CANEUS Outstanding Student Medal for MNT for Aerospace, and the CANEUS Medal for Vision and Leadership in MNT for Aerospace. The awards be presented to individuals or teams who have demonstrated excellence and leadership in technical or commercialization activities related to the transition of emerging MNT concepts to aerospace systems. In addition, five CANEUS Fellows will be selected in recognition of their crucial contributions in support of CANEUS organization activities.

Nominations of deserving individuals are currently being accepted, and will be evaluated by peer review. Nominations must include a brief summary of the contributions of the nominees, describing how their outstanding achievements and vision helped influence the development and infusion of emerging MNT concepts within the Aerospace industry.

Award recipients will be honoured at an Awards Ceremony scheduled to take place at the Gala Dinner at the biennial CANEUS Conference. The Smalley Medal for Excellence in Nanotechnology for Aerospace, the CANEUS Medal for Excellence in Microtechnology forAerospace, and the CANEUS Outstanding Student Medal for MNT for Aerospace each consists of a medal and a monetary prize, while the CANEUS Medal for Vision and Leadership in MNT for Aerospace is a plaque. Each of the five CANEUS Fellows will receive a plaque and a certificate, in addition to a free subscription to CANEUS Newsletter and Journal, and a reduced fee for future CANEUS Conferences.

These awards provide a unique opportunity to recognize those individuals who have exceeded expectations in furthering the goals and objectives of CANEUS. For more information on the Award Rules and for details on the evaluation process, please consult the Awards website.

About CANEUS
CANEUS is a worldwide non-profit organization catering primarily to the needs of the aerospace community by fostering the coordinated, international development of MNT (Micro-Nano- Technologies) for aerospace applications. As a "hands on" organization, CANEUS is focused on the practical aspects of transitioning MNT rapidly and efficiently from the concept to the system level. In achieving this goal, CANEUS brings together MNT developers, aerospace end-users, governmental policy makers and investors from across Canada, Europe, US, and Asia regions. Milind Pimprikar of Canada pioneered the formation of the joint Canada-Europe-USA-Asia (CANEUS) organization for the advancement of MNT for aerospace applications. Milind organized and hosted the first successful CANEUS workshop in August 2002 in collaboration with several agencies / organizations from across the globe.
