The Vice President for Research and Creative Activity is soliciting nominations for the 2018 Konneker Medal for Commercialization and Entrepreneurship.

The Ohio University Foundation established the award to recognize current and former faculty members, students and alumni who have demonstrated excellence in innovation, invention, commercialization and entrepreneurship.

Nominations should consist of a letter and an optional appendix of supporting documentation. Entries should address, and will be judged by the degree to which they establish, a record of demonstrated excellence in innovation, invention, commercialization and entrepreneurship by the nominee. Submissions should be sent electronically to David Koonce, interim vice president for research and creative activity, at research@ohio.edu.

The deadline for nominations for the 2018 award cycle is Wednesday, Oct. 31. The selection committee, which is chaired by the interim vice president, will include the director of the Technology Transfer Office, one dean and two faculty members. The committee will make its selection by Dec. 1. Up to three awards may be given per year. The Konneker Medal will be presented to the recipient(s) in February 2019.
