best industrial research lab (wbirl) program
In 1995, in a division-wide "town meeting" conducted in a
virtual cyber-tent, HP Labs articulated its vision to become the best
industrial research lab not only in the world, but for the world.
The vision quickly grew, and has been embraced and adapted by the
Hewlett-Packard Company: HP for the World.
This image, conceived by HPL engineer Sid Liebes, captures the spirit
of HP for the world. Bill and Dave gaze into the garage where HP and
Silicon Valley began. That symbol of entrepreneurship is balanced by the
Apollo 13 view of Earth from Space, showing its beauty and its fragility.
It speaks to the people of HP of what we could be. It reminds us of the
partnership between Bill and Dave that sparked this company, and of our
partnership with one another and with the world.
