The MIT Experience

Eric Brown
An Overview of ABB's Collaboration with MIT
Founded in 1861 as a land grant university dedicated to supporting the industrial revolution, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology is proud of its long and fruitful relationship with industry. Today, it leads the way in developing innovative approaches to industrial R&D investment and collaboration, including consortia and “mutual-fund” type research portfolios.

ABB has a long history of engaging in research activities at MIT both as the sole sponsor of projects and as a cosponsor of larger consortia activities. Together, MIT and ABB are forging creative solutions for many important problems.
