Honoring the Greatest Innovators

The National Inventors Hall of Fame® (NIHF) recognizes the enduring legacies of exceptional U.S. patent holders. Inventors improve our society not only by developing inventions, but also by creating and shaping industries that employ millions of people. With each new class of Inductees, we applaud their inventions and provide opportunities for them to engage and inspire the inventors of tomorrow who will transform our world.
