IBM Global University Programs

IBM OCR award recipients

The program promotes the development of open source software, related industry standards and greater interoperability. The OCR awards program enables multi year deep collaboration between IBM and university participants and allows faculty to take on new students and obligations. Outcomes of collaborations are open — meaning that results are freely available, and publicly shared — which provides maximum opportunity for others to build on the results.

Congratulations to the 2017 awardees!
