2017 Call for Nominations - Mahboob Khan Outstanding Liaison Award

Submission Deadline: Wednesday, April 5, 2017

Background

The SRC Liaison Program is one of the most effective methods developed by SRC to provide its members with early access to key technologies, substantial leverage in the explicit direction of technology development, and ultimate transfer of semiconductor technology from the research base to the supporting industry. Each year SRC recognizes individuals who, in serving as SRC Industry Liaisons, have had significant impact on the technical contributions of the research, are deeply committed to the education of graduate students, and have been instrumental in transferring the research results to industry.

Nominations

Nominations for individuals serving as SRC Industry Liaisons for a period of at least one year will be accepted from members of the SRC community. Past winners may only receive the award once for an individual task.

Nominators should use the Nomination Form with additional supporting documentation as appropriate. NOTE: Nominations should include letters of support from the faculty/students associated with the research.

Nominations must be submitted to awards@src.org by Wednesday, April 5, 2017. Receipt of all submissions will be confirmed by e-mail. Nominators will be informed of incomplete nominations. Incomplete nominations will be rejected if requested information is not provided.
