ABB is already working with ETH around the university’s research in the field of robotic fabrication in architecture and construction and helped establish the world’s first laboratory for collaborative robotic digital fabrication in architecture hosted at ETH’s Institute of Technology in Architecture. Together with ETH, ABB is also part of a project launched by Schindler, one of the world’s leading providers of elevators and escalators, for an automated, independently operating robotic installation system for elevators aimed at improving the quality and ease working conditions for elevator installers.
ABB is committed to supporting and working with more than 100 universities such as ETH as part of the company’s technology ecosystem. These collaborations are exceedingly valuable in strengthening ties between academia and industry, which is essential for the future of innovation and employment for students. ABB’s longstanding relationship with ETH encompasses the contribution of technology, collaboration on university spin-offs and partnering with the university to bring education to developing nations.
