I received an exciting email today with some information on an exciting new award program. Help me spread the word to the university community.
As IBM continues into the "Decade of Smart", IDR's role to ensure skills are being developed to help our clients create, implement and drive a Smarter Planet has never been more important. Developing this talent starts with partnering with universities to develop the "T-shaped" skills for the 21st century to produce a more competitive workforce. To this end, we are announcing the first industry-focused 2010 Innovation Awards (https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/university/innovation/index.html) to develop Smarter Planet curriculum. Have a look at the details of the program at this web site.
