Celebrating 10 Years of Innovation in Europe

GE Global Research Center Europe – October 8, 2014

Research happens when great minds work together to solve some of the world’s toughest challenges. At our research centers around the world, we have established an incredible pool of world class talent who are making an impact. Our team in Munich, specifically, is collaborating on projects with every GE business and with multiple customers. The work done in Munich has an effect on renewables and energy systems, composites manufacturing technologies for the Oil & Gas industry and aviation, and advanced medical diagnostic equipment.

This month, we celebrate a decade of innovation and game-changing technology from GE Global Research Europe. Achievements include phenomenal growth, outstanding breakthroughs in healthcare and huge leaps forward in wind energy. But perhaps the greatest takeaway form the last decade has been GE’s ability to create partnerships and communities to accelerate the rate of innovation.
