Known in certain circles as the “Oscar for Inventors,” the Lemelson-MIT program was developed to identify and recognize innovators who translate their ideas into inventions that improve the world. The Lemelson-MIT prize of $500,000 is awarded each year to mid-career inventors who develop a product or process that has been adopted for use or has a high probability of being adopted. A separate prize is also available to student inventors.
Since 2010, IPVision has provided the Lemelson-MIT Prize Committee with patent analysis reports on each of the semi-finalist and finalist nominees for the Lemelson-MIT Prize. You can download past reports by clicking the links below.
