Erik Middelman Innovation award
The Erik Middelman Innovation award is an annual award from the NWBA for people with long lasting involvement in Hydrogen Energy and the right drive to implement changes. Erik was an entrepreneur who many of you will remember as practical and inventive with the right attitude to get things done. This year we have evaluated several nominees and found one candidates to comply with the selection criteria and at the same time has the same drive, knowledge and motivation skills to get things moving the way Erik could.
