The Florida Inventors Hall of Fame is now accepting applications for its inaugural class of inventors whose achievements have advanced the quality of life for Floridians.
The deadline for nominations is June 2.
Nominations are open to all Florida inventors living and dead who have been residents of the state and completed a substantial amount of their inventive work while living or employed in the state. The nominee must be a named inventor of a U.S. patent issued by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
The impact of the inventor and his or her invention should be significant to society as a whole, and the invention should have been commercialized, utilized or led to important innovations.
To nominate, visit FloridaInvents.org, and complete the online nomination form.
Nominations will be reviewed by a selection committee comprised of experts in the relevant fields of innovation. Those elected through the committee will be inducted into the Hall of Fame at a ceremony Sept. 10 at the University of South Florida in Tampa.
The Hall of Fame advisory board is comprised of leaders and inventors representing public corporations, private businesses, research universities, nonprofit institutions, and governmental agencies on a regional, state and national level.
The Hall of Fame is located in the USF Research Park.
