Ever since Google was born in Stanford's Computer Science department, the company has valued and maintained strong relations with universities and research institutes. In order to foster these relationships, we run a variety of programs that provide funding and resources to the academic and external research community. Google, in turn, learns from the community through exposure to a broader set of ideas and approaches.
At Google we are excited to support the university research, academic development and technological innovation that happens across the globe. We have teams in China, EMEA, Australia, New Zealand, India and North America who build and maintain relationships with university research and faculty in their regions and support continuing innovation in computer science education.
In EMEA, the focus is on top computer science research across all EMEA universities.
Similarly, our group in Japan concentrates on extending our global programs to the top universities in Japan.
We focus on academic development and research through a variety of programs in China, including curriculum development, the student entrepreneurship program, and computer science education outreach program.
In Australia and New Zealand the focus is on excellence in research at leading universities, academic development programs, and STEM outreach initiatives.
Our programs in India focus on promoting state-of-the-art research at Indian universities and academic development programs that use the Internet to reach a large number of students and faculty.
