Active research support
Close cooperation with research institutes such as the FREEDM Systems Center has always had a high priority at TE. Such initiatives create not only the foundation for innovation, but ensures the development of new materials, manufacturing processes and products. The support of long-term research projects which go beyond traditional core competencies also opens up new possibilities, ensuring that TE's capabilities cover an even broader range in future.
