Scope:IBM University Programs works with 5000 universities world-wide with a global matrixed team of about 500 IBMers... Where to find more info:IBM has many programs for working with universities that can be found at http://www.ibm.com/universityContact:Jim Spohrer, Director IBM UP & Innovation Championhttp://www.service-science.info/archives/2233
Synopsis:All the programs fall within the 6 R's of IBM University Programs (IBM UP)... R = Research (Awards: University Relations) R = Readiness (Skills: Academic Initiatives) R = Recruiting (Internships & Jobs: IBM Global Centers) R = Revenue (Solutions: Super-Computers to Asset/Risk Management) R = Responsibility (Volunteers: On Campus IBMers & Smarter Cities Challenge) R = Regions (Startups & Jobs: Smart Camp Challenge)Examples:Our best university relationships are when all 6 R's are active - some examples...

It is IBM vision of the future that allows us to successfully compete for collaboratorsReal value:It is Ideal when we have one or more IBMers on Campus, who work to mature the 6 R's relationship between IBM, the university, and the regional economic development board; Foresight is required to continuously renew the high skill high pay jobs in a region by wisely investing in infrastructure and talent. IBMers on Campus are local partners to understand the regions social-economic-technology development plans and to provide foresight input, including GTO (Global Technology Outlook) presentations. For example, Personalized Education GTO topic should be seen by all college presidents, deans, and faculty.SSME+DAPP = Service Science Management Engineering + Design Arts Public PolicyUniversities have convening power that helps regions compete for collaboratorsIBM provides foresight and a global network for scaling up innovations
