Last year we learned that Apple had opened their third R&D center in Israel. The UK's Business Weekly now confirms that Apple is set to open its first office in Cambridge, the UK's innovation capital, in the next few weeks and will be considered the biggest feather in the Cambridge cluster's cap to date. The UK government has been working hard behind the scenes for the best part of 25 years to persuade Apple to take the leap of faith in Britain.
It's believed that Apple has identified 90 Hills Road for its Cambridge city centre offices and R & D function. With Grade A office space at a premium in Cambridge, Apple would probably start with around 20 staff but have capacity to gear up to as many as 40 in that space.
Other US technology companies in Cambridge include Qualcomm and Microsoft
