The American Physical Society established the Innovation Fund in 2019 to advance collaborative projects that support the Society’s mission.
Starting in November 2022, the Innovation Fund is undergoing strategic review and is not currently accepting award applications.
An independent review committee is currently working with APS staff and consultants to gather and analyze data on the impact of Innovation Fund awards, with the goal of providing recommendations for building on the Fund’s success in supporting physics collaborations.
APS is pleased to honor the exemplary recipients of the Innovation Fund for their commitment to serving the physics community:
