UIDP Webinar: Sony Research Award Program (2021)

UIDP hosted an informative webinar about the Sony Research Award Program on Thursday, July 15, from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. EDT, with 25 minutes of presentation and the remainder for Q&A from the audience. Learn more about the Sony Research Award Program, submission guidelines, and application deadlines during Sony’s webinar with Mark Ortiz, the Manager of the Strategy & Planning Office for Sony Corporation of America’s R&D Center U.S. Laboratory.

The Sony Research Award Program is an academic award initiative created to provide U.S., Canadian, select European, and now Indian universities funding for emerging and innovative technology research projects in collaboration with Sony’s own research division. The Program comprises the Faculty Innovation Award and the Focused Research Award within three broad subject categories: Information Technology, Devices & Materials, and Life Sciences.

With awards of up to $150,000 per year for each accepted proposal, the Sony Research Award Program creates new opportunities for university faculties to engage in pioneering research that could drive new technologies, industries, and the future.

The presentation slides will be available until September 15. There is no recording for this webinar.
