Overview: The Centre for Advanced Studies

by S. G. Perelgut, G. M. Silberman, K. A. Lyons, K. L. Bennet
The Centre for Advanced Studies (CAS) was founded in 1990 to facilitate the transfer of research ideas into products. This essay describes the original goals of CAS, how they have been applied, and how they have evolved. CAS has successfully moved concepts into products, matched students with appropriate jobs, demonstrated IBM's commitment to leadership by integrating current research into products available to customers, and supported academic research by doctoral students and faculty from more than 30 universities. More than 150 professors have received CAS funds. As we move into our eighth year, CAS is poised to expand beyond North America and to involve additional IBM sites.
