PTC Establishes R&D Center at the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology

Long-term Strategic Collaboration Includes ₪15 Million New Israeli Shekel ($5 Million USD) Investment

BOSTON, April 29, 2021 — (PRNewswire) —   PTC (NASDAQ: PTC) has entered into a long-term strategic collaboration agreement with the  Technion – Israel Institute of Technology under which PTC will establish a Research & Development center and invest 15 million New Israeli Shekels ($5 million USD) into PTC's Haifa campus. Under the terms of the agreement, PTC and Technion will jointly research and upgrade learning processes relating to advanced manufacturing technology. PTC's Haifa development center will relocate to Technion under the leadership of Dr. Michael Reitman.

PTC has also allocated an annual budget for joint research in industrial IoT, augmented reality, simulation, and generative design. The allocation supports Technion faculty by providing software products; awarding scholarships and incentives to students and researchers; initiating hackathons and contests; and sponsoring educational programs.

"Today, scientific and technological breakthroughs need both multidisciplinary research and close collaboration between academia and industry. Industry is at the forefront of active implementation and is well-acquainted with market needs, whereas academia brings basic scientific knowledge and research depth," said Professor Uri Sivan, President, Technion – Israel Institute of Technology. "This is why, in the past few years, Technion has placed greater emphasis on working to tighten its connections with industry, and the present agreement is the culmination of a long-standing relationship between Technion and PTC. We believe the agreement enables both parties to gain ground, grow, and reap the benefits of each other's strengths."

Announced in 2014, the initial agreement between PTC and Technion jumpstarted a robotics and digital content program for the Science and Technology department, including a teaching laboratory for industrial IoT, computer-aided design, manufacturing, and augmented reality, among other STEM topics. As a result of the long-standing collaboration, Technion alumni have joined PTC to lead the Company's Haifa development center, PTC's second largest center outside the U.S.

"The importance of collaboration between academia and industry is recognized worldwide," said Ziv Belfer, Divisional Vice President and General Manager, Research and Development, PTC. "PTC has enjoyed fifteen years of successful collaboration with Aachen University in Germany, including the construction of a separate campus that also houses R&D laboratories for companies that collaborate with academic staff. Several projects subsequently became success markers for commercial companies, and we look forward to replicating these efforts with Technion in Israel."
