ABB Research Award in Honor of Hubertus von Gruenberg

Honoring a leader, challenging a new generation.

About the ABB Research Award in Honor of Hubertus von Gruenberg

With the ABB Research Award in Honor of Hubertus von Gruenberg, we are giving outstanding postdocs a chance to continue their research.

As part of its innovation commitment, ABB invests significantly in research and development, and in 2020 the company has increased R&D and digital spend to 4.8 percent of Group revenues, corresponding to around $1.3 billion. The company employs some 7,000 R&D engineers globally, of which more than 60 percent are focused on software development and digitalization.

Who can apply?

We encourage everyone who has earned their doctoral degree within the years 2019 - 2021 in the fields of electrical, mechanical or software engineering, electronics, robotics, artificial intelligence, process automation, and any related technical discipline to apply for the ABB Research Award in Honor of Hubertus von Gruenberg if they are currently working at a university, research institution or comparable organization.

Those applicants whose dissertations involve electrification of industry and society or automating industries from natural resources to finished products will have a particularly good chance of winning this substantial personal research grant. But other exceptional work is also very welcome, especially if the creative use of software, digital technologies, energy efficiency, or new materials promises to lead to innovative industrial solutions. The jury will look for specific real-world applications and potential for innovation. The benefit of the research to society and the environment will also factor highly into the jury’s decision.
