University of Bristol selected as HP Innovation Research Award recipient

Bristol, UK | Posted on July 3rd, 2009

Professor Robert Richardson, University of Bristol, is one of 60 professors to receive an award as part of HP's Innovation Research Program, which is designed to create opportunities for colleges, universities and research institutes around the world to conduct breakthrough collaborative research with HP.

The University of Bristol will collaborate with HP Labs on a research initiative focused on materials. Professor Robert Richardson, author of the winning proposal titled ‘Production and properties of nanoparticle in nematic suspensions' and a professor in the Department of Physics, will lead the collaboration project with HP Labs.

Professor Bob Evans FRS, Head of the Department of Physics at the University of Bristol, said: "We're delighted with the award, which recognises Professor Richardson's innovative research in this area. It's very exciting to be in the position to develop new techniques in the emerging field of nanoscience, with its potential for future technological and economic development."

"Our goal with this program is to collaborate with the brightest minds from around the world to tackle the industry's most complex problems and push the frontiers of fundamental science," said Prith Banerjee, senior vice president, Research, HP and director, HP Labs. "The University of Bristol has demonstrated outstanding achievement and a vision that will help inspire technological innovation and address the most complex challenges and opportunities facing the industry in the next decade."

HP reviewed nearly 300 proposals from more than 140 universities in 29 countries on a range of topics within the eight high-impact research themes at HP Labs - analytics, cloud, content transformation, digital commercial print, immersive interaction, information management, intelligent infrastructure and sustainability. More details about the HP Labs Innovation Research Program and worldwide award recipients are available.
