Boston University

A partnership between Red Hat and Boston University, the Red Hat Collaboratory connects BU faculty and students with industry practitioners working in open-source software communities. The Collaboratory aims to advance research focused on emerging technologies in a number of areas including operating systems, cloud computing services, machine learning and automation, and big data platforms.

It does this through sponsorship of research projects led by collaborative teams from BU and Red Hat, support of fellowship and internship programs for students, organization of joint colloquia, seminar series, and roundtables, and engagement with other BU programs and offices. A fundamental goal of the collaboration is to develop techniques and best practices to integrate the rigor of academic research with the power of open-source innovation. For more information, see
