Innovation & Collaboration

In the fields of engineering and technology, cooperation and open innovation between companies, universities and research institutions can enhance the development of new ideas and knowledge on a faster growth path than would be possible by acting alone.

Collaborating to grow smart grid knowledge

ABB was built on a commitment to innovation and has long recognized the value of teaming with other pioneers; investments in research initiatives, fellowships and strategic partnerships have enhanced the ABB portfolio and led to international and cross-industrial cooperation in almost every ABB business.
ABB has many academic-based smart grid collaborations with prestigious learning institutions around the world, including projects in the US, Sweden, Germany and Italy. On the industry side, ABB is highly active also. Its close collaboration with external partners and their efforts have led to the execution of several demonstration projects.
