HARTING has joined the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Industrial Liaison Program (ILP) as a member, expanding its already-existing partnership with the university.

“Participation in the MIT Industrial Liaison Program will support us in our endeavours to offer our partners worldwide, and especially in the USA, measurable added value,” says Dr.-Ing. Kurt D. Bettenhausen, board member for new technologies and development at HARTING.

The MIT ILP, established in 1948, is focused on maintaining relationships between MIT and over 200 corporations around the world.

“We are delighted to welcome the German technology company HARTING, a global market and technology leader for industrial connection technology, to push forward innovative opportunities,” says Karl F. Koster, executive director, corporate relations of the Industrial Liaison Program at MIT.
