Hello and Guten Tag

My name is Dr. Matthias Kaiserswerth and I’m the director of the IBM Zurich Research Lab.  Established in 1956 the Zurich Lab is one of IBM’s eight global research centers and is probably most famous for producing 4 Nobel Laureates in 1986 and 1987.

Why blog? Well, I speak at many conferences and I am a firm believer in open collaboration and innovation, particularly between academia, government and corporations.  And while I speak at conferences (view my presentations) and visit many universities, public officials and clients, I want to do more.  So I hope to use this blog to share my thoughts and observations about innovation, science and whatever else comes to mind as we collectively prepare for the future.



  1. Thanks! I just read through all the posts. I’ll want to talk with you next week about just how hard it has been to keep this up … I still don’t have a blog though I share your values about openness. Irene
