Accelerating Science Award Program (ASAP)

Nominations are being accepted for “individuals who have used, applied, or remixed scientific research – published through Open Access – to make a difference in science, medicine, business, technology or society as a whole.”

The ASAP Program seeks to build awareness and encourage the use of scientific research — published through Open Access — in transformative ways. The program illuminates how the unrestricted exchange of information can advance science and medicine, and benefit society. The ASAP Program also aspires to encourage a new generation of individuals to embrace the application of scientific research published through Open Access.
