ROCKAWAY, N.J. – The editors of R&D Magazine have announced the winners of the 51st annual R&D 100 Awards, which recognize the 100 most technologically significant products introduced into the marketplace over the past year. The full list of this year’s winners is now available: 2013 R&D 100 Awards winners.
The R&D 100 Awards recognize excellence across a wide range of industries, including telecommunications, optics, high-energy physics, materials science, chemistry and biotechnology. Some winners are established Fortune 500 companies and others are federally funded research institutions. The technologies this year include an electron microscope capable of recording movies, a device that harnesses power from viruses, a robotic glove and an underwater vehicle that can operate both with and without a human crew.
All winners receive recognition by R&D Magazine’s editors in special coverage on www.rdmag.com and in the September/October issue of R&D Magazine. The top 100 technologies are split between private industry, academia and publicly funded or nonprofit research institutions. This year’s awards also highlight the power of collaboration. Winning technologies developed by teams of two or more cooperating organizations earned 42 of this year’s 100 winners.
Since 1963, the R&D 100 Awards have identified revolutionary technologies newly introduced to the market. Winners of the R&D 100 Awards are selected by an independent judging panel and the editors of R&D Magazine. The publication and its online portal serve research scientists, engineers and other technical staff members at high-tech industrial companies and public and private laboratories around the world.
Winners will be recognized at the R&D 100 Awards Banquet on Nov. 7, 2013, in Orlando, Fla.
