To promote micro- and nano-engineering in Europe, the MNE Steering Committee recognizes a researcher or engineer every year who has made outstanding contributions to fields addressed by the MNE conference.
The aim is to honor a researcher or engineer who has inspired the MNE community by his/her leadership or outstanding work. This could, for example, be through leadership in the successful development and commercialization of a technology, the pioneering of a method or development of a tool with significant impact on current research or manufacturing methods, or an outstanding invention.
This year’s price will be conferred to Dr. John Randall from Zyvex Labs, a pioneer in MEMS/NEMS technology and advanced lithography. In addition, he succeeded in unique way to animate young researchers to combine science, art and fun in the yearly MNE micrograph contest.
The award ceremony will take place during a Plenary Session of the MNE Conference.
