Every year, the Edison Awards honors one or more individuals who, through their careers, their leadership and their achievements, have distinguished themselves by making a significant and lasting contribution to the world of innovation.
The Edison Achievement Award recognizes and celebrates their contribution to human-centered design, the value and differentiation they create, the positive influence they have on existing, new and emerging markets and the impact they have on the world.
The Edison Awards Steering Committee is responsible for selecting the Edison Achievement Award honorees. They review biographies, practices, and impact of nominees and select individuals who are on the cutting edge of innovation to receive the distinguished award.
