Kisoi Motohiro Award

This award is named in honor of Motohiro Kisoi who was trapped under the debris of a wooden apartment building and died at the age of 23 in the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake on 17 Jan. 1995. He was studying intelligent manipulation of robots at Kobe University and dreaming of pursuing his career as a researcher or engineer engaging in robotics which could soothing people's mind.
To take over his dream, this award would be given young researchers or engineers, generally under 40 years old, marking outstanding achievement in the study and development of the rescue system. And IRS launched this awarding project on 17th January 2005, the 10th anniversary of the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake.

We accept candidates annually from the general public. They are examined and judged by the review board with varied specialism. The winners are given the Kisoi Motohiro Award in the award presenting ceremony every year around 17 Jan.
And, in 2009, we have created a new category for students "the Award for Encouragement" to encourage students who major in or study the rescue robotics.
From the 2014 fiscal year, we has decided to award "Medical Achievement" and " Psychology Achievement" , once in five years.
