BOSTON—The Lemelson–MIT Program has selected Cone to provide national and local media relations support for its prestigious awards and outreach programs for inventors.

Based at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, the Lemelson–MIT Program was established in 1994 by one of America’s most prolific inventors, Jerome Lemelson and his wife, Dorothy.  Administered by MIT’s School of Engineering, it seeks to raise the stature of inventors and to provide resources and inspiration to make invention and innovation more accessible to today’s youth.

Cone has been charged with generating local and national media coverage for the Lemelson-MIT Program, its annual Invention Index survey, and its annual awards, which include the Lemelson-MIT InvenTeams high school grants initiative, the Lemelson-MIT Student Prize, the $100,000 Lemelson-MIT Lifetime Achievement award and the $500,000 Lemelson-MIT Prize, the world’s largest for invention.
