The Edison Awards, named for Thomas Edison, recognize excellence in new product and service development, marketing, human-centered design and innovation. More than 3,000 business executives, academics, designers, scientists, and engineers from the U.S. judge Edison Award nominees. Each year a gold, silver, and bronze medal are given out to the top products in various categories.
"Recognition from the prestigious Edison Awards is an honor and validates the commitment to research, development, and science that is so important at 3M," stated David Frazee, vice president of digital at 3M ESPE Dental, in a press release.
Edison Universe, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization dedicated to fostering future innovators, conducts the award program.
