Purpose

We spearhead innovation at Bosch

Taking action worldwide to consolidate and expand Bosch’s innovative capabilities, it is our divisions that conduct research into the technologies that will shape the future and help to drive today’s innovations forward.

Start shaping the future today

Research is a global issue, because efficiency, safety, comfort and sustainability are concerns that affect everyone, everywhere. That’s why we choose to operate in a global network that prioritizes scientific excellence. While facilitating contact between in-house Bosch experts, this network also brings on board leading external partners. What emerges are interdisciplinary teams that encompass different cultures and working models, offering a wealth of insights from science and industry.

Our activities here extend from applied research through to scouting work. The breadth and diversity of our network helps us create technology that is “Invented for life” and allows us to make a key contribution to the company’s overall performance. Our accomplishments bridge the gap between illusion and reality and open up new lines of business. The environment we create is one that embodies and nurtures superior know-how and technical excellence. We achieve excellence – and that makes us a valued partner for all Bosch divisions.

Research at Bosch is not just about exploring the technologies that will generate additional value in the next generation of products. It also means investigating the key issues that lie beyond that. The results of our research are channeled into countless different applications. By discovering and developing new technologies and methods, we lay the foundations for successfully transferring relevant findings into the Bosch divisions.

“For engineers, physicists, and academics with a science background, this is the playground to be.”
