The intent of the awards program is to support academic research aimed at improving information access (defined broadly). Google funds Research Awards unrestricted and retains no intellectual property from the research.
Google prefers the results from the research be open sourced and widely published. Awards through this program are for one year in the range from $10K-$150K.
Areas that are of particular interest include (but are not limited to):
Award recipients will be assigned a Google Sponsor, through whom they can discuss research directions, provide progress updates, engage in knowledge transfer, etc.
Google maintains an academic environment that we would like to share with our award recipients, so we invite them to visit our facilities, to give talks related to their work, and to engage in discussions with our research groups. By sharing new ideas and key insights, we hope that both Google and award recipients will find mutual benefits.
