Siemens opens Bangalore R&D centre

The Corporate Technology Department of Siemens has set up a research centre in Bangalore.

The Corporate Technology Department of Siemens has set up a research centre in Bangalore.

The Bangalore centre is one of the Siemens unit's nine facilities worldwide, which together lead the company's core research and development (R&D) activities, Claus Weyrich, member of the managing board of Siemens and head of the Corporate Technology Department.

The Bangalore centre, which will be initially staffed by about 30 people, will focus on high-end R&D in the area of software engineering technologies for multisite global product line developments, client-server technologies for next-generation medical imaging solutions, and embedded software for security and automotive applications, according to Weyrich. 

The centre will also team up for R&D with some leading Indian educational institutions, he said.

Siemens through its Indian subsidiary, in Mumbai, already employs more than 3,000 software developers in India. While Siemens continues to expand its R&D in India, it is not shifting jobs from Germany to India, said Juergen Schubert, managing director of Siemens.
