IBM Research – Ireland is home to state-of-the-art innovations for societal and infrastructure transformations. July 2010 marked the inauguration of IBM Research – Ireland as the 3rd European and one of 12 IBM Research Labs globally. Located in Dublin at the IBM Technology Campus, 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 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).
