# IEEE Morris N. Liebmann Memorial Award

Der **IEEE Morris N. Liebmann Memorial Award** ist ein Technik-Preis für neue Entwicklungen der letzten Jahre, der zuerst 1919 vom *Institute of Radio Engineers* (IRE) verliehen wurde und später vom (mit dem IRE fusionierten) IEEE. Zuerst war es ein Preis für Radiotechnik. Er ist nach Oberst Morris N. Liebmann benannt. Er wurde bis 2000 vergeben, danach wurde er vom IEEE Daniel E. Noble Award abgelöst.
