The UConn School of Engineering announced the launch of a new UConn-ZEISS Partnership with the opening of a new, state of the art laboratory, the Reverse Engineering, Fabrication, Inspection and Nondestructive Evaluation (REFINE) Lab. The event was attended by many members of the ZEISS leadership team, including President of ZEISS North America, James Sharp.

According to Sharp, working with a top research institution like UConn is part of the ZEISS tradition.

“It is deep in our roots at ZEISS to collaborate with scientists to improve our products. Over 150 years ago, Carl Zeiss and physicist Ernst Abbe partnered to achieve global success,” explained Sharp. “Since then, more than 20 Nobel Prize winners have relied on ZEISS microscopes to conduct their research. We know that this tradition will continue thanks to the UConn-ZEISS partnership and the REFINE Lab.” Read the full story from Technology Innovation Partnership
