Intel® Higher Education Research Programs
Extend Moore's Law. Define Cloud Computing for 2020. Explore security in the Internet of things.
These are a few of the groundbreaking explorations where Intel is working with university researchers, providing access to the latest technologies and Intel scientists, and establishing collaborative communities.
Exploratory Research Collaborations
Intel-funded, jointly-led exploratory research communities focus on specific technology areas or disciplines. They bring together top researchers from across academia and within Intel, to explore and uncover not only new answers, but new questions.
These communities, called Intel Science and Technology Centers (U.S.) and Intel Collaborative Research Institutes (internationally), currently focus on a range of computing challenges including big data, Cloud, Computational Intelligence, Connected Context, Pervasive, Secure, Social, Sustainable Connected Cities, and Visual Computing.
Focused Research Collaborations
Intel collaborates with academic researchers to provide the technical and financial support for projects that push technology beyond its known limits and Influence the strategic direction of Intel and its ecosystem through focused, long-range interdisciplinary university research programs.
Current priority topics include security, system-on-chip infrastructure, emerging disruptive technologies, materials and nanotechnology, storage hierarchy, energy efficiency, communications and networking, new uses of computing, and more.
Long-Term Industry Research
Intel works with standards and industry organizations to advance technology. We also partner with groups who share our passion for supporting students pursuing advanced research.
For example, Intel is a member of the Semiconductor Research Corporation (SRC). This organization is the leading consortium for semiconductor technology research. It works with industry, university, and government members on precompetitive technologies. The SRC has also supported thousands of faculty and students at scores of universities—with fellowships and scholarships.
