IBM has maintained a research laboratory in Switzerland since 1956, located on a leafy campus just outside of Zurich. As the largest European branch of IBM Research, the mission of the IBM Research - Zurich Lab, in addition to pursuing cutting-edge research for tomorrow's information technology, is to cultivate close relationships with academic and industrial partners, be one of the premier places to work for world-class researchers, to promote women in IT and science, and to help drive Europe's innovation agenda.
IBM Research - Zurich is widely known for having achieved two Nobel prizes for the invention of the scanning tunneling microscope in 1986 and the discovery of high-temperature superconductivity in 1987. In the 21st century, IBM Research - Zurich continues to pursue exploratory research with the new Binnig and Rohrer Nanotechnology Center, where scientists research novel nanoscale structures and devices to advance the energy efficiency of information technologies.
