Our Research Focus

About the IBM Research – Ireland Lab

In July 2010, our lab opened as a Smarter Cities Technology Centre and Research and Development Laboratory and from 2011 it became known as IBM Research – Ireland, part of a network of 12 IBM Research Labs globally. Located in Dublin at the IBM Technology Campus, we are home to state-of-the-art innovations for societal and infrastructure transformation and our research focuses on improving city operations and the well-being of citizens.

We operate under a collaborative environment involving IBM scientists, industries and universities.

We recently opened our THINKLab for deep dive discussions with clients in a dedicated and immersive audio visual space. We accompany IBM in its transformational journey with the mission of building smarter cities and in the process transforming mini-cities while strengthening the foundations for smarter infrastructures through the Internet of Things (IoT).
