Who we are

IBM Research - Haifa is the largest lab of IBM Research Division outside of the United States. Founded as a small scientific center in 1972, it grew into a major lab that leads the development of innovative technological products and solutions for the IBM corporation. The Lab works with IBM development and services arms, partners with clients to answer their needs, and collaborates with universities to promote industrial research. Reinventing and refocusing itself during the years to stay at the forefront of the technology, most projects today fall under cloud, storage, and Big Data, alongside social analytics, mobile, security and quality. The lab also focuses on two industry domains: healthcare and retail.
