Automation and technology provider ABB invites proposals from academic and research institutes around the world to support promising graduate students with projects that combine academic research with industrial application in the power and automation area.
The application process will start on Sept. 2 and will close on Sept. 30. Funding will be approved for one year at a time, but the program is designed to fund projects over multiple years. Grants will typically fall within the range of $50,000 to $80,000 a year, and the principal investigator or main applicant will hold a position as a professor associated with a university, university college or research institute.
Successful candidates will be notified starting Oct. 31, and funding will begin on Jan. 1, 2014. All dates are subject to change by ABB.
