Business-to-Business publisher WTWH Media, LLC is pleased to share that it is the new home of the R&D brand, which encompasses the publication, website, R&D 100 Awards, R&D 100 Conference, and the esteemed annual Global Funding Forecast.
Co-Founder & Managing Partner Scott McCafferty explained that the brand and its components have many connections to WTWH's current array of technical websites serving the design engineering community. "Our brands cover much of manufacturing and engineering disciplines, and we focus on cutting-edge technologies, from robotics to medical devices," he said. "Incorporating R&D into our offerings is a natural fit for us."
Tim Studt, the former editor of R&D Magazine and longtime lead author of the Global Funding Forecast, is assisting WTWH to continue the long-standing value associated with the Global Funding Forecast and R&D 100 Awards program. Tim commented that he is proud to see that WTWH is moving forward with the programming and research that is critical to industry.
"WTWH is making a significant contribution to the industry by ensuring that this brand's legacy continues forward," said Studt.
The R&D 100 awards program has now been re-opened for submissions through September 25th. This will allow any organizations to finalize their entries to be considered for the 57th annual awards presentation. Finalists will be announced in early November and winners will be notified shortly thereafter, prior to the awards presentation.
The R&D 100 Conference will be held December 4-5, 2019 at the San Mateo Marriott, conveniently located near San Francisco International Airport, with the awards dinner on the evening of the December 5th. More details on the conference schedule and agenda will be released in the coming weeks.
Paul J. Heney, Vice President, Editorial Director for Design World, said, "R&D is such a venerable brand, and we're honored to take the reins and move it forward. The R&D 100, in its 57th year, is a critically important part of the industry as a whole, from corporate research facilities to national labs and academia," said Heney.
