  2. An impactful body of independent work and publications in the area of sustainable nanotechnology: environmental, societal, or economic.
  3. Current Membership and Registration at the 2020 9th Nano Conference virtual, Nov. 12-13, 2020.

The nomination consists of a single (1-page max) nomination letter, a second (1-page max) support letter and a 2-page CV (self-nominations are not accepted). The nomination letter should describe how the nominee's research impacts the field of sustainable nanotechnology. The support letter should focus on the nominee's teaching, service and leadership in the field of sustainable nanotechnology. Both the nomination and support letters can be made by SNO members.
