The Governor’s Office of Economic Opportunity’s Utah Innovation Center announces its annual call for nominations for the Governor’s Science Medal in conjunction with Gov. Cox’s biannual One Utah Summit.

Since 1987, the Governor’s Science Medal has recognized the distinguished service, significant achievement, and positive economic impact of individuals and companies to the state of Utah and beyond in the fields of science and technology. The medal recipients provide meaningful contributions in science, research, STEM education, or deep technology.

“We’re honored to recognize the state’s best and brightest individuals who are thought leaders in the scientific community,” said Dan Hemmert, the Economic Opportunity office’s executive director. “Much of the success of the state’s scientific industry is due to the high caliber of Utah technology experts and their jaw-dropping achievements.”
