The new innovation and training campus will develop technologies for the factory of the future, based on ABB Ability, in which production will be undertaken autonomously by smart and cloud-connected machines and robots.

The new research and development campus will cover 35’000 square metres and be home to a number of facilities. Alongside R&D laboratories, which will develop and test new automation technologies, from industrial control systems up to machine learning and artificial intelligence.
The ground-breaking ceremony is planned for this summer, and the new campus is expected to be up and running in the course of 2020. Once complete, the Eggelsberg site will be one of ABB’s largest research and development centers.
