“Microsoft Israel R&D Center is one of Microsoft’s three strategic R&D centers outside the U.S. and home to some of the company’s most exciting and innovative technologies.

One of the key pillars of our vision is to harness the talent and innovation of the Israeli high-tech industry. We look to the Technion as one of the jewels in the crown of Israeli academia – a fertile source of talented and bright engineers and researchers.

Our unique relationship and collaboration with the Technion goes back a long way and was facilitated by the Computer Science Industry Affiliate Program (IAP). It went on to become even stronger when we established the joint Academic Research Center for development Of E-Commerce technologies at the Technion. Furthermore, our prestige “Excellence Program”, has included many students from the Technion throughout the years.
I look forward to strengthening our partnership with the IAP as part of our joint mission to maintain Israel’s qualitative edge through its thriving high-tech industry.”
