Tech Museum Awards 2004 Call for Nominations
About The Tech Museum Awards
The concept for The Tech Awards and its five categories was inspired in part by The State of the Future report of The Millennium Project of the American Council for the United Nations University, which recommends that award recognition is an effective way to accelerate scientific breakthroughs and technological applications to improve the human condition. The Tech Awards were inaugurated in 2001, and have since generated over 1,000 nominations across 75 countries. Judging for The Tech Awards is independently conducted by Santa Clara University's Center for Science, Technology, and Society, a global network of academic and industry experts dedicated to understanding and influencing how science and technology impact society. Worldwide, the center assembles panels of judges for each category, recruited from research institutions, industry and the public sector.
