The R&D 100 Awards & R&D 100 Conference

There’s a unique event coming up on Nov. 21-22, 2019—and you will want to be a part of it! The R&D 100 Awards have served as the most prestigious innovation awards program for the past 56 years—with the celebration taking place at the black-tie awards presentation on Nov. 22 in Louisiana. The R&D 100 Conference was launched in 2015 as an executive educational event that both celebrates the historic R&D 100 Awards and provides unique opportunities for R&D professionals to learn, network and collaborate.

This year at the fifth annual R&D 100 Conference, leaders from the R&D community will gather to exchange brand-new ideas in innovation, technology transfer and R&D strategies that will transform the future of R&D across industries. Multi-disciplinary General Sessions are specially geared for today’s R&D leaders—and up-and-coming leaders—to help them tackle the most important challenges facing the R&D community right now. The conference creates a rare collaborative space where ideas flow and networking is truly special.

Together, the R&D 100 Awards presentation event and the R&D 100 Conference explore the most significant strides in R&D that you will not find elsewhere—offering an enriching, one-of-a-kind experience for R&D professionals of all levels and specialties.
