Robert Bosch Micro and Nano Electro Mechanical Systems Award
Robert Bosch (1861-1942)
Inventor, Entrepreneur, Founder of Robert Bosch GmbH
The Robert Bosch Micro and Nano Electro Mechanical Systems Award was established by the IEEE Electron Devices Society in 2014 to recognize and honor advances in the invention, design, and/or fabrication of micro- or nano- electromechanical systems and/or devices. Individual contributions should be innovative and useful for practical applications.
This award is sponsored by the IEEE Electron Devices Society with financial support from Robert Bosch LLC. It is intended that the award will be presented annually to an individual or to as many as three individuals whose achievements and contributions are judged to meet the selection criteria for the award. The award will be presented at an IEEE conference of the winner's choice. It is not necessary for the recipient(s) to be a member(s) of IEEE.
Please note: The EDS Bosch Award cannot be given to a candidate for the same work for which an IEEE Technical Field Award, IEEE Medal, or other society level award was previously received.
The recipient will receive a US$10,000 honorarium, travel expenses to attend the award presentation, a bronze medal, and a certificate. In the event that more than one awardee is selected, the cash honorarium will be equally divided among the recipients. Each recipient will receive a bronze medal and a certificate.
