U of T’s Acceleration Consortium cements partnership with global tech leader Merck KGaA
The partnership focuses on accelerating the discovery of materials for a healthier, more sustainable future using self-driving labs.
The Acceleration Consortium at the University of Toronto recently welcomed a visit from its new industry partner, Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany. The Consortium is building a global community dedicated to accelerating the discovery of materials we need for a healthier, more sustainable future through the development of self-driving labs.
By combining artificial intelligence, robotics, and advanced computing, self-driving labs can reduce the time and cost of bringing advanced materials to market, from an average of 20 years and $100 million to as little as one year and $1 million.
