The Kyoto Prize is Japan’s highest private award for lifetime achievement in advanced technology, basic science, and the arts and philosophy. The Prize is given each November in Kyoto, Japan, by the Inamori Foundation.  The Inamori Foundation was established by Dr. Inamori, the founder of the Kyocera International. The US presentation of the Kyoto Prize takes place in San Diego each spring as the Inamori Foundation Board and Dr. Inamori gather together with the Kyoto Prize Laureates for lectures, celebrations, and presentations.

The 2017 Kyoto Prize Symposium will be held March 14-16, 2017.  The 3-day symposium will begin on PLNU’s campus on March 14, where the three laureates will participate in an opening press event. The laureate presentations will be hosted by SDSU, USD, and UCSD on March 15 and 16.
