As a pioneering technology leader in electrification products, robotics and motion, industrial automation and power grids, ABB has a history of innovation spanning more than 130 years. From the world’s first three phase system to the first commercial HVDC transmission line, from the world’s first microprocessor controlled and all-electric industrial robot IRB 6 to Yumi, the first truly collaborative dual-arm industrial robot, technology innovation is the lifeblood of ABB. Headquartered in Switzerland – the world’s most innovative country, ABB invests more than one billion US dollars in R&D every year, and employs around 8,000 technologists in more than 20 countries. During the Swiss Innovation Week, ABB will exhibit its world leading technologies and recent developments. Together with the exhibition, ABB will also hold a seminar to introduce its recent development in its cutting-edge digital solutions and applications. Dr. Jean-Jacques de Dardel, the Swiss Ambassador to China, will deliver opening remarks for the seminar. The seminar will also be a promotion event for ABB 2018 University Innovation Contest. Event principles will be invited to give valuable instructions on this year’s contest. Following the seminar, a networking session and exhibition tour will be arranged, where the guests can get a good view of a number of most innovative technologies in Switzerland from ABB and other Swiss companies.
