Why IBM for academic research and collaboration?
IBM has a strong tradition of research collaboration with academia. We go beyond the boundaries of our IBM labs to work with colleagues in universities around the world to address global grand challenge problems. We also foster collaborative research related to transformation and innovation of businesses and governments, relationships through fellowships, grants, and funding for programs of shared interest.
IBM offers awards to support research, curriculum development, and educational assistance in areas of innovation.
The results of these initiatives are freely available. Use the research principles and examples to jump-start your own projects.
