Computer Laboratory receives one of Google’s new Focused Research Awards

The University of Cambridge Computer Laboratory has become the only university outside the US to receive a Google Focused Research Award.

The award will support the Lab’s Computing for the Future of the Planet research initiative, led by Head of Department, Professor Andy Hopper.

Professor Hopper said, “The nature of these awards, which place no restrictions or constraints on the funded research, is particularly refreshing, and will help to stimulate true innovation and accelerate the development of new ideas and practical solutions. I am sure that our own work and that of other university recipients will demonstrate the value of this approach and strengthen relationships between industry and academia.”
