Building partnerships to advance computer science and education
Microsoft Research is committed to building partnerships with academia to advance computer science and education. This effort extends our scope to include important new areas outside core computer science. These partnerships involve new types of strategic public-private collaborative endeavors with universities, such as research grants, conference support, Ph.D. fellowships, travel grants, and work with universities, institutions, and schools to disseminate innovative curricula.
