Apple setting up an R&D center in Cambridge


According to a report from Business Weekly, Apple is planning to open a new facility for research and development purposes within the next few weeks in Cambridge, England. 

The company is presumably going to set base in a prestigious two-storied corporate building in 90 Hills Road in Cambridge city, which is around 830 sq. meters big. The area is popularly called the Cambridge Cluster and offices of other tech giants like Microsoft and Sony are also located nearby. The Cupertino based company is going to start its office and R&D center with only around 20 employees and will be looking to expand it to 40 by next year.

The Cambridge Cluster is already benefiting with investments from Microsoft, Spotify, Qualcomm and Huawei. Apple invests heavily in Research and Development and has a number of R&D centers across the world, including countries like Israel, Taiwan and more. This will, however, be Apple’s first R&D Center in Britain after the government has worked hard for the last 25 years in persuading the company to show interest in the country.
