Advancing Innovation

Collaboration is the key to our success

We help IBM product teams engage with students and faculty in joint academic-industry projects that promote innovation within IBM's offerings and in published academic research.

We currently have 60 joint academic-industry research projects associated with 105 IBM products, and involving 124 IBMers, 60 faculty and 129 students . In advancing the thesis research of each student, these projects generate publications, patents and IBM product contributions.
