Share this post:

Some segments of the media have lately focused their coverage on programs that benefit economic development, scientific research, and education. In the last few weeks alone, we’ve seen articles that have examined issues and initiatives such as the following:

IBM World Community Grid
Two projects hosted on IBM’s World Community Grid are making progress in helping to identify clean energy and an AIDS cure. Voice of America discusses how The Harvard Clean Energy Project used World Community Grid to create a public, searchable database of novel, organic compounds that rates their potential as inexpensive and efficient solar cells. And CNN.com takes a look at how Android-based mobile devices can help FightAIDS@Home.

Pathways in Technology Early College High School (P-TECH)
The City of New York is using IBM’s blueprint to expand an education model that blazes a pathway from high school to college and career. Check out what The Wall Street Journal, the Associated Press and NY1 have to say.

IBM Corporate Service Corps
Forbes profiled IBM’s corporate citizenship programs – including the IBM Corporate Service Corps, a worldwide pro bono consulting and leadership development program – that are shared with other companies.

IBM Smarter Cities Challenge
We love it when cities adopt our recommendations generated from IBM Smarter Cities Challenge pro bono consulting engagements. For instance, in this op-ed from its editors, the Knoxville News Sentinel congratulates its hometown mayor for taking a new approach to educating and providing incentives to citizens and property owners for making their dwellings more energy efficient.

Ari Fishkind is a media relations liaison for IBM’s Corporate Citizenship & Corporate Affairs.
