Awards Program Overview

The Strategic Partnerships Office (SPO) is pleased to provide an opportunity to recognize the outstanding technology transfer-related contributions of our scientists and engineers. We are committed to seeking out and nominating our technologists for internal and external awards that have a technology transfer component.

Our awards program has grown significantly over the years and we strive to expand the program to honor those who have made significant contributions in the area of technology transfer. We are continually looking for additional awards to add as well as to expand the nominations we receive for these awards.

We currently submit nominations for awards in three groups:

  1. NASA Technology Awards/Incentives
  2. James Kerley Award
  3. External Technology Awards Programs

For more information about these awards, follow their links. Although there are specific times when different awards are selected, we accept nominations at any time for these awards. If you would like to nominate a team or individual for the NASA Technology Awards/Incentives, Technology Transfer Program Technology awards, or external technology awards, please submit your nomination to the Strategic Partnerships Office, Code 102.
