Kyoto Prize Symposium

MARCH 15-17, 2015

San Diego, CA

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 bring Laureates for lectures, celebrations, and presentations.

The Kyoto Prize Symposium will begin on PLNU’s campus on March 15, where the three laureates will participate in an opening press event. The laureate presentations for the symposium will be hosted by SDSU, USD, and UCSD on March 16 and 17.
