Request for Proposals from ABB (Deadline: September 30, 2013)

ABB, the leading power and automation technology group, 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. 

ABB already collaborates with a number of academic research groups world-
wide. The ABB Research Grant Program is intended to enlarge and complement 
the circle of our university partners. 

The application process will start on September 2, 2013 and will close on 
September 30, 2013. 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 October 31, 2013 and 
funding will commence on January 1, 2014. All dates are subject to change 
by ABB.
