Share this on social media:

Edmund Optics, provider of optical components, is accepting applications for its 2013 Edmund Optics European Research and Innovation Award.

The company will be awarding grants worldwide totalling $85,000, in products, in support of outstanding undergraduate and graduate optics programmes in science, technology, engineering and mathematics at non-profit colleges and universities.

'We are thrilled and humbled by the success of our higher education grant programme and pleased to kick off our fourth year,' said Kirsten Bjork-Jones, director of global marketing communications.

'We remain committed to supporting and recognising outstanding research programmes and inspiring future optical innovation. It's easy to apply and I would encourage anyone involved in a project using optics, optomechanics or imaging components at a non-profit college or university to do so.'

The process for selecting award winners is determined by the EO award team. After thorough review of applications, finalists are selected and asked to provide more detailed information about their programmes. Award recipients are then selected based on the following criteria: technical merit and innovative use of optics in a research setting or lab. Finalists will be announced on 24 July, and winning award recipients will be announced on 4 September.
