The goal of the Global Research and Innovation Partnership (GRIP) is to provide a platform that can effectively and efficiently share information and best practice across a safe network of the world’s leading utilities, and align research and innovation agendas.
R&D and Innovation departments are often focused on helping their company to be more efficient, prepare for new threats or maximise current opportunities. This is driven by many factors such as increasing customer and environmental demands as well as providing sustainable returns for their shareholders.
Often, utilities do not have the resources to identify, source, review, develop and implement the ideas and solutions they need. Collaboration holds the key to sharing resources and knowledge - opening the opportunity for a more organised collaboration, and on a global scale.
Regular calls through GRIP on topics of importance to its members facilitates this exchange of knowledge and allows participants to identify collaborations for further exploration.
