When the Queen Elizabeth Prize for Engineering (QEPrize) was established in 2011, its goals were nothing short of recognizing individuals whose contributions to engineering have changed the world in lasting ways. Three NAI Fellows have since been honored among the recipients of what
is now known as the largest engineering prize in the world, with an award of £1 million presented biennially. This article provides a brief retrospective of the QEPrize, profiles the three NAI Fellows awarded this rare international distinction, and offers some contemporary thoughts about
the power of recognition to inspire future generations of innovators.
