Intel Honors 9 Faculty and 25 Doctoral Students with Awards at Intel’s European Research and Innovation Conference (ERIC)

October 25, 2012, Barcelona, Spain

On October 23rd the University Program Office at Intel honored 9 faculty and 25 doctoral students from European Union (EU) universities through two new innovative programs – the Early Career Faculty Honor Program (ECFHP) and the Doctoral Student Honor Programme (DSHP). Both of these programs award cash gifts intended to help support research and education as well as to enable the awardees to travel to Intel to collaborate with Intel researchers.

The Intel Early Career Faculty Honor Program targets faculty who are relatively new to academia with less than 4-years of experience.  16 of the top universities in the EU submitted 33 nominations based on innovative research in areas such as sustainability, smart cities, embedded applications and visual computing. These nominees then submitted an application form which was reviewed and rigorously evaluated by committees of Intel’s top researchers. Out of these 33 nominations 9 were selected as being the best. They are as follows:
