At ABB, innovation is our lifeblood: We are always looking for new ways to make our customers more competitive and minimize environmental impact.
That is why we work with the very best academic talent, not just in engineering but also in a wide range of disciplines including materials science, software and more.
We invest heavily in collaborations with more than 70 universities worldwide, including 25 universities and colleges in Canada, to develop long-term disruptive technologies and short-term evolutionary innovations for our existing products and services.
Our Global R&D Lab has 9 programs focusing on automation and power, ranging from control and communication technologies to switching technologies and power electronics.
Each program devotes time and money to our university partners, and equips them with our latest products and services, to help us create the breakthrough technologies of tomorrow.
