For pioneering contributions to the development and commercialization of the Lithium-ion battery

<Achievement>

Specifically, Dr. Yoshino's research demonstrated high-capacity rechargeable LIB that are stable and capable of supporting repeated charging and discharging. This was accomplished with electrodes, one of the main components of batteries, that Dr. Yoshino developed using LiCoO2 as the positive electrode and carbonaceous material as the negative electrode, mainstream ingredients of today's batteries. The C&C Prize was awarded to Dr. Yoshino in recognition of the leading role that LIB are expected to take in the progress of modern developments.

Group B
Prof. Norman Abramson     Professor Emeritus, University of Hawaii

Today, Ethernet is the most widely used LAN standard and has had immense impact on information technology since its initial appearance in the 1980s. The C&C Prize was awarded to Prof. Abramson and Dr. Metcalfe in recognition of the exceptional contributions their work makes to the development of today's networking field.
