La National Inventors Hall of Fame (NIHF) è una organizzazione nonprofit che riconosce inventori che detengono un brevetto U.S. di alto profilo tecnologico. Viene fondata nel 1973, per onorare tali soggetti. Accanto alla Hall of Fame, opera un museo a Alexandria (Virginia), e una scuola a Akron (Ohio), e sponsorizza programmi educativi.[1]

Al 2020 sono 603 gli inventori introdotti viventi e non.[2] Un comitato decide annualmente chi introdurre, detentori di brevetti statunitensi.[3]

Introduzioni[modifica | modifica wikitesto]

Nella National Inventors Hall of Fame vi sono inventori di secoli passati e persone viventi. John Fitch è il più lontano nel tempo, nato nel 1743. Il più giovane è Barrett Comiskey nato nel 1975.

Nota
* Denota inventore che è stato anche premiato dal Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers con la IEEE Medal of Honor.
