The Chicago Council on Science and Technology will honor two individuals with an “Advancing the Public Understanding of Science & Technology Award” by awarding a “Lifetime Achievement Award” as well as a “Young Professional Award.” C2ST created this award in 2012 to honor individuals who share in the passion and mission of the organization—to increase the awareness of the great R&D taking place in our region. A special award will be granted to our outgoing Board Chair and President-Elect of the National Academy of Engineers, John Anderson.
