Our ambitions in the UK

Drive Arm’s growth:

Devoting NVIDIA’s resources and expertise to accelerate Arm’s existing roadmaps for customers, partners and developers.

Expanding Arm’s R&D capacity and breaking into new areas with high growth potential.

Supporting Arm’s customers, growing the ecosystem and attracting developers.

Offering NVIDIA IP to Arm’s customers through Arm’s existing licensing channels.

Establish a new world-class AI research centre:

Home to a state-of-the-art supercomputer powered by Arm CPUs and NVIDIA GPUs, with NVIDIA networking.

Heart of NVIDIA’s European hub of collaboration with universities, industrial partners and start-ups.

At the iconic headquarters of Arm.

Establish the NVIDIA Deep Learning Institute for Europe:

Training and attracting thousands more students on fundamental and applied AI.

Making our curriculum available throughout the UK.

Preparing the next generation of UK developers for AI leadership.

Continue to nurture the UK’s innovation ecosystem:

Opening the AI research facility for collaboration with UK industry leaders addressing the world’s most pressing challenges.

Expanding research partners within the UK through research fellowships and partnerships via the AI research centre.

Helping UK start-ups grow through access to the Arm supercomputer, NVIDIA experts, technical training and marketing promotion.

“In addition to a spirit of invention, R&D requires three ingredients: great talent, the right technical tools, and significant investment. In Cambridge, you have the first in abundance: amazingly talented engineers. NVIDIA will provide the second ingredient. Core to our plan is constructing a world-leading AI research centre in Cambridge, powered by a combination of NVIDIA and Arm hardware. And we also intend to invest heavily to turn our vision into reality. Our intent is to grow Arm and its ecosystem dramatically.”
