Vertiv, a global provider of critical digital infrastructure and continuity solutions, is pleased to announce a new partnership with RISE Research Institutes of Sweden (https://bit.ly/3tH4i53), a leading research institute and innovation partner. Vertiv is entering the partnership program for data centre systems technologies at the platinum level, joining founding partners such as Facebook, Ericsson, Vattenfall, ABB, LTU and the Norrbotten region.
The data centre research at RISE is based in Luleå, Sweden, and RISE is owned by the Swedish state and supported by EU funds. Collaborating with universities, industry and the public sector, RISE performs industrial research and innovation, with the overall objective to support sustainable growth by strengthening industry competitiveness and renewal.
Vertiv CTO, Stephen Liang, said “RISE demonstrates technology leadership in applied research, which makes them a perfect partner for us at Vertiv. This will help us lead the industry into the new era of sustainable large-scale cloud data centres, enterprise and edge applications.”
“RISE is playing a leading role in driving sustainability across Europe and Vertiv is ideally placed to provide it with forward-looking engineering solutions for the data center industry and beyond,” said Giordano Albertazzi, Vertiv president, EMEA. “Data centres are a critical part of the digital infrastructure. Efficiency and sustainability are a strong focus for the industry and are becoming increasingly important. New technologies, system solutions and components need to be ideated, developed, tested and verified before hitting the market. We see our partnership with RISE being a big part of that.”
Tor Björn Minde, Director ICE Data centre at RISE, said “We want to come closer to the industrial needs and a partnership helps the dialogue and direct bi-lateral collaboration. This way we can continue to develop our thought leadership together with our partners.”
