Nobel Family Announces Creation of New Award

The organizers of nanoTX'07, a comprehensive nanotechnology conference & exposition happening in Dallas, Texas at the Dallas Convention Center from Oct. 3-4, and the Nobel Charitable Trust today announced in a joint news release that Dr. Michael Nobel will announce at the event the establishment of the first new award associated with the Nobel Family name since the Nobel Prize in Economics was established in 1968.

The specific challenge area that the award addresses will not be revealed until the opening night Nobel Laureates Reception on Oct. 2, 2007. Dr. Nobel will be the featured keynote presenter at the opening reception, an invitation-only event. The conference & exhibition is open to the general public.

nanoTX'07, presented this year by the Semiconductor Industry Association, explains how nanotechnology is being used today and how it will impact a broad range of industries tomorrow, including electronics, energy, aerospace, defense, biomedicine, robotics, chemicals, and more.

"The economic and social health of our civilization as a whole directly depends upon finding solutions to the most important challenge of the 21st century," Dr. Nobel said. "This is why we are creating this new award and lending the credibility of the Nobel family name to its establishment. It is critical that we build awareness and support for solutions to this challenge among all people of the world. We felt that nanoTX'07 represented an outstanding opportunity to announce this award and reach the largest possible international audience."

The Dr. Michael Nobel Award will be presented to individuals and organizations in four categories:

  • Scientists or institutions that have made important discoveries that directly impact and advance the development of solutions to the challenge.
  • Corporate leaders or companies that have demonstrated successful efforts in finding new solutions.
  • Political leaders who have distinguished themselves by implementing policy actions that have or will have a significant impact on solving the challenge.
  • Celebrities who, by using their positions as public figures and opinion leaders, have substantially helped influence global public opinion toward the need for long-term solutions and short term remedies.
