Finalists Announced for 2019 R&D 100 Awards

Finalists for the venerable R&D 100 Awards have been announced by R&D World magazine and its new parent company, WTWH Media, LLC.
"We had more than 40 well-respected industry professionals across the world take part in our Judging Panel," said Paul J. Heney, Vice President, Editorial Director for R&D World. "And we've heard from so many of them about how the quality of submissions was excellent this year. The process was a very competitive one, and all of the finalists should be proud of this achievement."
The finalists are listed below by category, and then alphabetically by submission name. Under the product name, the primary submitting organization is listed, followed by the names of co-developing organizations, if applicable. Congratulations to all of the finalists! For more information see the IDTEchEx report on Graphene, 2D Materials and Carbon Nanotubes: Markets, Technologies and Opportunities 2019-2029.
The winners of the R&D 100 were announced on Tuesday, October 29th, along with the Gold, Silver and Bronze winners in the four Special Recognition categories. The R&D 100 Awards Banquet took place on Thursday, December 5th at the San Mateo Marriott near San Francisco, California — in conjunction with the R&D 100 Conference.
