LIFT Announces 3rd Annual LIFT Insight Award Recipients, Recognizing Member Contributions
During LIFT’s inaugural A2M2X – Accelerating Advanced Materials and Manufacturing Exchange, the institute celebrated its members during the 3rd Annual LIFT Insight Award Program.
The LIFT Insight Awards, presented annually, recognize member contributions to the institute’s technology and talent programs, along with key service providers, government partners, LIFT member alumni, and the member who has delivered the largest overall impact.
Our members and those who partner with us to achieve our goals are the heart of LIFT. Each one of them is instrumental in supporting our warfighters and manufacturers across the country. The LIFT Insight Awards were established in 2021 as a way to celebrate individuals who have shown commitment and collaboration with LIFT and within the LIFT Ecosystem to truly drive American advanced manufacturing into the future.
Recipients of these awards are determined through a nomination and voting process among LIFT staff who work with LIFT members on a daily basis.
Many thanks and congratulations to the 2023 LIFT Insight Award Winners!
