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.

Every year, IBM Canada Advanced Studies recognizes the most outstanding research projects that exemplify drive for innovation, collaboration and forward thinking research.
These awards at presented at our annual CASCON x EVOKE academic tech conference—a space to engage and learn with a community of software developers, researchers, students, academics, decision-makers and IBMers.
