Microsoft Research Cambridge was set up in July 1997 with three researchers. Today over 100 researchers, mostly from Europe, are engaged in computer science research at the lab. The city of Cambridge, England, was the clear choice for the location of the facility because of its world-renowned reputation and its rich history as a center of learning.

From the Laboratory Director
“At Microsoft Research in Cambridge, we are proud to be part of a world-leading research organisation of over 1,000 of the most talented people in computing. Our open and unconstrained approach to research, coupled with the bold and inquisitive minds of our researchers and engineers, has seen our lab produce contributions to Microsoft’s most successful products and services, as well as key contributions to the academic community. But, we have just scratched the surface of what technology can do for us. We are continuing to push the boundaries of computing to create ubiquitous technologies with the potential to transform our lives.”
