He and Professor Yoichiro Suzuki accepted the share of the prize awarded to the Super-Kamiokande experiment in Japan. All five winning teams investigate neutrino oscillations, and include a team at Sudbury Neutrino Observatory in Canada headed by Professor Arthur B McDonald, with whom Kajita shared the 2015 Nobel Prize for Physics.

The work of seven leaders and 1,370 members of experiments was recognised in the award. A total of $22 m for physics, life sciences and mathematics was awarded in the Breakthrough Prizes, which are now in their third year.
