The Research & Development Council of New Jersey established the Edison Patent Award to honor Thomas Edison’s incredible legacy and to use his name to honor successor New Jersey inventors and the research organizations that drive innovation and continue to position New Jersey as a global innovator.  Not only does this award allow inventors throughout the state to celebrate the achievements of other R&D colleagues, it also publicizes to the greater public, media and policymakers, the substantial and positive societal impact of New Jersey’s R&D accomplishments.  This recognition program is a cornerstone to the Council’s mission to collaborate among industry, academia and government to grow and strengthen STEM in education, innovation and the economy.   The 43rd Edison Patent Awards Ceremony will be held on November 3, 2022.  The event will be held at the Liberty Science Center in Jersey City. This award gives New Jersey’s top researchers the opportunity to be connected and to learn from one another about the tremendous research and development being done in the state.  Official invitations and sponsorship opportunities will be sent out shortly. It is an event to celebrate the achievements of those who work to change the world as we know it-what a celebration it is.  

Dr. Zhang’s patent titled Microwave-assisted Antifouling Membrane Filtration System, U.S. Patent 10,583,402, was selected to be honored as a 2022 Edison Patent Award Winner in the Emerging Technology category.  This honor will officially be awarded at the Council’s 43rd Edison Patent Awards Ceremony on November 3, 2022.
