The Red Hat Collaboratory at Boston University has opened a Request for Proposals in support of the launch of the expanded Collaboratory. The Collaboratory seeks to define and demonstrate an open model for large-scale reproducible systems research toward achieving a future of secure, reliable, scalable, self-operating, distributed, heterogeneous compute platforms that stretch from edge devices to cloud datacenters.
Boston University (BU) has long been a big part of the Red Hat Research program and Red Hat’s academic collaboration generally. On April 27, the two organizations took that collaboration up a level.
MIT hosted a virtual panel for graduate students interested in doing research for high tech companies on January 27, 2021 as part of the Institute’s Independent Activities Period. The “PhD Careers in Tech” event, which covered many different fields of graduate study in both sciences and engineering, as well as general entrepreneurship, included panelists from diverse industries who shared key insights, spoke about skills required for success, how to navigate the interview process and how to build career paths in industry.
The project was initiated in 2019 with the goal to provide U.S. students with a unique summer research experience through project collaboration with outstanding partners in the Czech Republic. Even though the year 2020 was impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak, we managed to transform the activities into an online internship.
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.
