Honda Initiation Grant Fall Symposium: Mountain View, CA, 11/15

The Honda Initiation Grant Fall Symposium will be held on the afternoon of November 15 at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View.

The Honda Initiation Grant (HIG) is a university outreach program designed to develop collaborative research between Honda and members of the academic community. The program typically awards several research grants each year - each between 50 & 100K - and also hosts a Fall Symposium which is set up to promote face-to-face collaboration between Honda executives, associates and university faculty attendees.

Many Honda executives, engineers and scientists will be on hand exhibiting a broad variety of Honda research interest including automotive, computer science, chemistry, materials and aviation technology. In addition to the many research topics, we will be giving a demonstration with the ASIMO humanoid robot, and presenting the HondaJet, world premiere, dynamic large-scale detailed model.

The goal of the Honda Initiation Grant program is to fund innovative ideas in the early stages of research that are likely to make valuable contributions to technology over a longer term of five to ten years. Over the past decade, Honda has awarded 75 research grants to professors at universities throughout North America focused on the development of cutting-edge technologies in the areas of environmental technology, fundamental material science, computer science and humanoid robotics, advanced safety technology, intelligent vehicle technology and aviation.click here
