Congratulations to our 
1999 R&D 100 Awards Winners!

Read all about the winners in our September R&D 100 Awards issue. These winners have been recognized as the 100 most technologically significant new products and processes of the year by R&D Magazine.

 The Chicago Tribune has called these awards "The Oscars of Invention." Others have referred to the R&D 100 Awards as the "Nobel Prizes of Applied Research." Past winners have included breakthroughs like Polacolor film, the flashcube, the digital wristwatch, antilock brakes, the automated teller machine, the liquid crystal display, the halogen lamp, the fax machine, and Fruitrim fat replacer.

 The 37th annual competition saw outstanding entries from many of the most prestigious companies, research organizations, and universities in the world. The caliber of entries was truly exceptional.

 On behalf of the editors and staff of R&D Magazine and the 70 outside experts who participated in the judging, congratulations!
