Advance Innovation Policy and Strategies
Investing in Research and Development is critical to solving today's challenges - from energy and healthcare to finding ways to improve our transportation systems and water quality. Government plays an important role in providing R&D funding to create the foundation for new discoveries and technologies and services, often in partnership with the private sector and the academic community. IBM has identified a number of key technologies where critical investments should be made, including exascale computing, nanotechnology, business analytics, cloud computing, service science, and healthcare transformation. IBM works with governments around the world to encourage public sector investment in science and technology R&D; and in many instances, IBM partners with governments on strategic R&D initiatives.
