Huawei Innovation Research Program (HIRP): HIRP Open 2018

HIRP OPEN is a 1-2 year award to support contract-based innovation research of world-class full-time faculty members at top universities around the world.

Huawei issues an annual “HIRP OPEN Call for Proposals” that openly lists key topics of interest and solicits proposals for research subjects.

Currently there are 160 specific subjects available.

Funding & Duration

Through a formal review process by Huawei Technical Experts Group members and invited international distinguished scholars, selected proposals will receive financial support with the amount ranging from USD $30,000 to USD $70,000 (approx. AUD $40,000 to $93,000). In some cases, larger awards may be possible for especially outstanding proposals.


Joint research proposals from multiple universities will not be accepted in the HIRP Open program, but can be considered for the HIRP FLAGSHIP program.

Please refer to the application documents listed against each subject for details.
