Ever curious about the culture of Microsoft Research (MSR), how we are different from many other corporate research labs? Roy Levin, Director of the Microsoft Research Silicon Valley wrote an article (easy-reading) explaining the differences between university research, major corporations labs and how MSR is like a hybrid of the two systems. It is interesting to see the explicit business decisions made to preserving academic freedom and integrity and maintaining corporate and business relevance, confidence and support.

Great article on harnessing research innovation, people and performance management.
