University researchers from the faculty of engineering and engineers from industry met last month to discuss R&D problems and technological solutions in the power and automation field. The ‘ABB day’ at the College brought together over 50 staff from both universities and ABB, the leading power and automation technologies company. They examined joint approaches for developing optimal power infrastructure, reliable power grids, and optimal manufacturing and customer processes. Imperial and ABB also signed an agreement to cement their collaborative framework for R&D management.
