The R&D 100 Conference and Awards

The R&D 100 Awards have served as the most prestigious innovation awards program for the past 56 years, honoring great R&D pioneers and their revolutionary ideas in science and technology. The R&D 100 Conference was launched in 2015 as an educational event that celebrated the historic R&D 100 Awards and provided a new, in-depth conference that brings together the unique opportunities for R&D professionals to learn, network and collaborate.

Together, the R&D 100 Awards gala event and the R&D 100 Conference explore significant strides in R&D, offering an enriching experience for R&D professionals of all levels and specialties.

Winners of the 2020 awards can be viewed below. The conference sessions were held live, in a virtual format but are available to watch on demand!
