The Juneau Economic Development Council and the Alaska State Committee for Research (SCoR) are seeking nominations for the Alaska Innovators Hall of Fame. SCoR invites interested persons to nominate outstanding innovators to be inducted into the Alaska Innovators Hall of Fame. Nominations must be submitted no later than December 15, 2021.

Nominees must have been an Alaska resident for at least one year, or have made a significant demonstration of the innovation’s links to Alaska or have conducted research work in Alaska.

The committee created the hall of fame in 2014 to celebrate and honor outstanding individuals who put Alaska on the map as leaders in innovation and to contribute to Alaska’s growing culture of innovation. The University of Alaska is committed to establishing equal educational opportunity and encourage nominations of minority and underrepresented individuals.

Nominees who are selected by SCoR will be members of the 2022 class and will be inducted at the Innovation Summit held in Juneau on March 16-17, 2022.

Past inductees include the bulbous bow of the Alutiiq angyaq, aurora expert Dr. Syun-Ichi Akasofu, and Erv Long, inventor of the thermosyphon that holds up the Trans-Alaska Pipeline System.

More details are available at the SCoR website.
