Microsoft Research

A highly credible academic partner and flowing pipeline of technology transfers into the Microsoft business.

About

Cambridge, UK, was the clear choice for the first lab established outside of the United States, due to its rich history as a centre of higher learning and growing global impact as a leading high-tech hub.  From a beginning of just three researchers in 1997, to over 130 researchers and engineers today, the lab has established itself as a highly credible academic partner and flowing pipeline of technology transfers into the Microsoft business.

The freedom of enquiry enabled by Microsoft’s approach to basic and applied research, coupled with the diversity of researchers and engineers in the Cambridge lab – ranging from sociologists, mathematicians, computer scientists, biological scientists and interaction designers – has produced contributions to some of Microsoft’s most successful products and services.

Microsoft Research Cambridge is excited to be part of a company that is unreservedly committed to pushing the boundaries of what is possible, in order to create innovative solutions and break-through ideas that will empower every person and every organisation on the planet to achieve more.
