Time to nominate the industry’s best!

February 12, 2017

AIM’s International Readers’ Poll is an assessment of where the algae industry is today, and what dominated for the past year — as decided by you. The I.R.P. singles out those people, companies and developments that are driving the industry’s progress, as well as those who are making the most valuable contributions though their research, skills, ideas, dedication and high achievement.

As the algae industry continues to reinvent itself, you — our readers — are at the center of the changes, and quickly recognize where innovation and excellence are showing up. Your perspectives and first hand knowledge are invaluable in identifying what is driving the industry. So, we invite you to name the nominees and vote for those deserving of recognition in A.I.M.’s International Readers’ Poll.

Please take a few minutes and nominate. You can bring light where there was none or too little. You may nominate candidates in one or several categories. If you are interrupted, you may log off and return where you left off. Nominations will be open for only two weeks, so please send in your nominations ASAP.

Distinguished algae industry author and educator Dr. Mark Edwards will lead the proceedings. The nominations and voting process will be overseen by A.I.M.’s Science Advisory Committee, which is composed of ten leading and highly respected industry educators, researchers and pioneers.

Dr. Mark Edwards, Board Chair, Professor, Arizona State U.
Mark Allen, Vice President, Accelergy Corporation
Dr. Russell Chapman, Former Executive Director, CMBC, Scripps Institution
Dr. Keith Cooksey, Professor Emeritus of Biology, Montana State University
Dr. Brian Goodall, VP Business Development, SRS Energy
Robert Henrikson, Former-CEO, Earthrise
Dr. Ira Levine, Associate Professor, University of Southern Maine
Lieve Laurens, Senior Research Scientist, NREL
Jim Sears, CTO, Algae@Work
