Bosch, a leading global supplier of technology and services, renewed its energy research collaboration with the MIT Energy Initiative (MITEI) at a ceremony in Cambridge, Massachusetts, yesterday. The agreement, signed by MIT Vice President for Research Maria Zuber and Robert Bosch LLC President Mike Mansuetti, confirms the collaboration between the two institutions and establishes a new path forward.

“To bring research from the lab to the marketplace, it’s essential to have a keen awareness of the industry perspective. MIT’s work with Bosch is one example of how we’re gaining that vital insight,” Zuber said. “We’re extremely pleased to be continuing this productive collaboration with a company devoted to developing innovative technology for sustainable growth.”

Mansuetti added that renewing the MIT Energy Initiative research partnership is important because it “advances Bosch’s commitment to science, technology, engineering and math – or STEM education – which Bosch supports at all levels, from elementary school children to students who are pursuing college and post-graduate education. In addition, Bosch is proud to support MIT, as it is regarded as a premier educational and research institution.”

Bosch, a member of MITEI since 2008, will continue as a Sustaining Member and committed another $5 million over a five-year period to fund a research portfolio focused on energy efficiency and renewable energy research projects. In addition to the research portfolio, Bosch will continue to support competitively awarded fellowships for MIT graduate students to conduct research in various energy disciplines.

Over the past five years, the research collaboration between MIT scientists and Bosch Corporate Research has focused on the search for new materials for electrochemical energy storage, thermoelectric materials for residential heat and electricity co-generation, and ultra-efficient thin-film solar cells.

“Bosch has been a strong collaborator in our work to advance cutting-edge energy science and technology,” the MIT Energy Initiative’s Director Robert Armstrong said. “We expect our collaboration will strengthen in the years ahead as we build on established relationships and research and tackle new global challenges to create a clean, affordable energy future.”
