Outstanding Industry Contributor

The Zephyr Foundation is seeking nominations through the end of the year for the inaugural Outstanding Industry Contributor Award. This award shall be given to an individual who in embodying the Zephyr Principles, has selflessly contributed to the good of the industry through the body of their work.

Outstanding Industry Contributor shall be:

  • Collegial and collaborative, investing in shared technical knowledge and community assets in order to reach common goals (e.g. open access papers, code, documentation, and data);
  • Generous with their time such as investment in mentorship, community-assets, and other volunteer roles;
  • Respectful and thoughtful in their interactions; and
  • Goal-oriented towards the public good and usefulness, even if the pathway is unconventional.

Nominations will be considered annually and can be made on a rolling basis using this form. Nominees will be considered by a three-person award committee and forwarded to the Zephyr Board for approval. Awards are made at the TRB Annual Meeting.
