3M Awards Help Make Possible Young University Professors’ Passion for Research
Thirty one visionary scientists from 20 leading research and development universities in the U.S. are sharing the results of their innovative work at 3M. These non-tenured faculty members each received the 3M non-Tenured Faculty Awards, which allow them to conduct and showcase their scientific efforts to peers and technical employees at 3M Science and Engineering Faculty Day. 3M named a total of 52 recipients this year.
3M Non-Tenured Faculty Awards encourage the pursuit of new ideas among non-tenured university professors, giving them the opportunity to interact with their peers and 3M scientists. Science and Engineering Faculty Day presents the opportunity to 3Mers to stay in touch with the creative ideas that are stimulating some of the nation's brightest minds. 3M grants the awards as part of 3M’s support of innovative research in higher education.
