Our engineers partner with researchers and students at universities worldwide to collaborate on research projects from AI to privacy to heterogenous hardware.

The PACT (Private Automated Contact Tracing) protocol is a simple, decentralized approach to using smartphones for contact tracing based on Bluetooth proximity. Users of this scheme do not reveal anything about themselves, unless they volunteer to do so. In particular, users can volunteer to donate their private data to a (trusted) health authority, who can then use this data to further control the spread of the virus, but this is discretionary to the users.
During the summer semester of 2020, Red Hat’s Beyond platform offered a class on open source development in conjunction with Efi Arazi School of Computer Science at the Interdisciplinary Center (IDC) of Herzliya, Israel’s only private university.
In this series of Research Days, Red Hat experts, including Red Hat’s Chief Technology Officer, Chris Wright, and researchers from Harvard, Yale, Boston University, and other leading universities discussed their ongoing research on technology to improve privacy and security, make experimentation and system execution more reproducible, and enhance the performance and reliability of cloud systems.
This summer, Red Hat sponsored the Leadership Academy, a program launched by the University of Massachusetts Amherst, led by equity and inclusion expert Nilanjana Buju Dasgupta.
Red Hat offers students a unique opportunity to gain real-life working experience working on Red Hat projects and products. Every Red Hat intern works on a project with a goal of getting code into open source, building experience and upstream credibility along the way.
At Red Hat, our engineers are full of good open source ideas, but there’s only so much time to work on them. You can help! Whether you’re an experienced coder or just starting out in open source, we’ve got a project that’s right for you.
Red Hat Research Quarterly
Ever wonder what it’s like to report a security flaw to a major chipmaker? Find out in our interview with Kit Murdock in the latest Red Hat Research Quarterly. Every quarter, we detail the latest projects we’re working on, and interview a leader in open source code and cutting edge research.
