EDN 2010 Innovation Award finalists: Are you inspired?

EDN Staff - February 17, 2011

EDN 2010 Innovation Award finalists: Are you inspired? imageEDN’s annual Innovator and Innovation of the Year competition was designed more than two decades ago with one goal in mind: to find, recognize, and promote the people and products that truly inspire the engineering world. Each year, we are amazed by the quality of the entries and the dedication of so many individuals and companies to achieving engineering excellence. And, with your help, we are eager to recognize some of them. Check out the finalists across many categories, and then go to to review complete writeups of each finalist and cast your online ballot. We’ll roll out the red carpet and honor all of the nominees and winners at a reception on May 2 in San Jose, CA. If you’d like to join the festivities, you can also find event and ticket information at this link.
