HP’s global footprint expands our access to ideas, talent and partners. HP Labs in Bristol is home to the second largest of HP Labs’ research centres. Our Bristol research facility is a vibrant community, where teams from HP work with researchers and interns from universities from across Europe to create next generation technologies that are vital for our online world.

As our world becomes more connected, with growing amounts of data online, across public, private and hybrid clouds, managing all that data and keeping it safe is becoming an ever more challenging problem for organisations. Where is it? Who can access it? Is it secure? Is it safe?

We are creating new ways to handle the movement of information across corporate, national and legal boundaries at enormous scale and speed while providing assurance, insight and control. We are developing technologies that provide secure foundations that software and systems can rely on, and novel mechanisms to detect and recover from cyber-attacks at massive scale.

Our imaging technology research smooths the transition between the real worlds of things and objects and the digital world of pixels and documents, helping people enjoy digital experiences and businesses deal with ever more complex information. And we work on 3D printing technologies so that we can bring digital information to life as real world objects.

Research programs

Research at HP Labs Bristol is primarily focused on Security, Cloud, Printing and Imaging technologies. Our goal is to create the technologies, tools and services that enable enterprises to benefit from the transition of IT to the Cloud. As our world becomes more connected, with growing amounts of data moving online and across public, private and hybrid clouds, management of this data is set to become ever more complex.

We’re creating new ways to handle the movement of information across corporate, national and legal boundaries at enormous scale and speed while providing assurance, insight and control. We’re also developing technologies ranging from embedded security control points within devices to novel mechanisms for the detection and mitigation of cyber-attacks at massive scale, providing a robust, end-to-end chain of trust.
