The prestigious business magazine CEO has introduced an article on cooperation between Eaton and the Czech Institute of Informatics, Robotics and Cybernetics (CIIRC).
Exctract from the article:
How would you describe Eaton’s involvement in the automation space and how has the Czech Institute of Informatics, Robotics and Cybernetics (CIIRC) been a key collaborator in this work?
While we are a player in the automation space, to be truthful, we are not a major player yet. There are several other companies that are much bigger than us, so we are working hard to catch up, and there’s a lot of work to do. That means on top of our other efforts, we have to be setting ourselves up to be innovative in the automation sector, and that’s where CIIRC plays a key role.
If you think about what’s going on in this space right now, around the Internet of Things (IoT), and the mass digitisation of everything, it is not only new, but developing really rapidly. It’s valuable having access to younger minds and talent, like CIIRC students, who are engaged in the subject and grew up in this digital culture; they understand how these things work better than people like me, and that makes them really important.
CIIRC provides us with an able group of capable, passionate people, located right near us in Prague. It’s an excellent partnership that we are able to take advantage of, and a great group of young engineers who are going to help drive innovation as we go forward.
