This award recognizes a single outstanding technical achievement made by an ACerS corporate member in the field of ceramics.

Through this award, the Society recognizes corporate members who have taken a technology and successfully developed it into a viable commercial product. It is not necessary for the technical and commercial development to be accomplished by one company, and joint nominations can be submitted. Up to two awards may be made each year.Read More
