Research Interest Groups (RIGs)

Research Interest Groups (RIGs) foster research that aligns with Red Hat’s technical direction and open source mission. The RIG connects Red Hatters with researchers at partner universities to form coalitions in support of particular research initiatives and provides an opportunity to share accomplishments.  The RIG is composed of interested Red Hat Associates with a strong interest in a particular research area.

In addition to joining a RIG, those interested in learning more about Red Hat Research and how we work to bring great research ideas into open source communities, subscribe to Red Hat Research Quarterly, sign up for our monthly newsletter (for Red Hatters), and follow our events, including the monthly Research Days series.
