IBM and ETH Zurich form strategic partnership in nanoscience
Date:6/25/2008

The two partners have a long-standing tradition of scientific cooperation, and now make an important step to deepen this collaboration further by forming a strategic partnership in the field of nanotechnology. The collaborative project was revealed at a joint media conference in Zurich by Prof. Ralph Eichler, President of ETH Zurich, and John E. Kelly III, Senior Vice-President and Director of IBM Research. As part of this collaboration, a new building with cutting-edge research facilities will be constructed on the campus of the IBM Zurich Research Laboratory in Rschlikon (CH), with the laying of the founda-tion stone scheduled in spring 2009, and the start of research activities in 2011.

A value-add for Swiss industry

This nanotech lab will have a strong value-add, not only for the participating institu-tions, but for Swiss industry as a whole, said Professor Ralph Eichler, as we are open to collaborations with Swiss companies and research institutes. With EMPA the Swiss interdisciplinary research institution for material sciences and technology devel-opment - one additional partner for collaboration is already involved. The collaboration brings with it considerable potential for the creation of new production techniques from which Switzerland, with its sizeable community of SMEs, will profit.

The nanotech lab will make world-beating research possible, but the partnership itself is also innovative. By creating this common research center, IBM is expanding a collabo-rative and cooperative research program aimed at accelerating our understanding and implementation of nanotechnology and its broad range of applications", said Dr. Kelly. "We see this type of collaboration as an emerging model for future industry-academic partnerships.

New building shared infrastructure

The two institutions will focus on research in various fields of nanotechnology, ranging from exploratory and basic research to applied
