Infosys and UK’s Rolls-Royce open joint R&D centre in Bengaluru, India

The companies hope to provide digital and engineering services to companies across the globe

Infosys and Rolls-Royce have officially launched their joint Aerospace Engineering and Digital Innovation Centre in India, which will provide research and development (R&D) services integrated with advanced digital capabilities.

With the opening of the centre in the southern city of Bengaluru, the companies will now combine their aerospace, engineering, and digital services capabilities to explore opportunities for driving digital and engineering innovation. They aim to expand the local talent pool in the country too, and deliver manufacturing engineering services for the global civil aerospace ecosystem.

This isn’t the first time the two companies have worked together. In December 2020, the two companies announced a collaboration for sourcing engineering and R&D services for Rolls-Royce's Civil Aerospace business, where Rolls-Royce transitioned part of its engineering centre capabilities to Infosys.

"We are delighted to extend our collaboration with Rolls-Royce and work towards digitally transforming engineering and business process management shared services in India,” said Jasmeet Singh, executive vice president and global head of manufacturing at Infosys. “We will aim to be a catalyst for Rolls-Royce to deliver efficiency, effectiveness and experience while driving continuous change towards creating a value ecosystem that is sustainable.”

Kishore Jayaraman, president of India and South Asia at Rolls-Royce, said that given the aerospace sector is poised for revival and growth in India and across the world, the joint innovation centre will strengthen the company’s global engineering ecosystem and position it well for the future.

The deal marks yet another high profile deal for India's second-largest tech company. In September, it teamed up with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to enrich its quantum computing capabilities, mainly through the use of Amazon Braket, which is designed to help streamline scientific research and software development. Users are able to test their algorithms on a local simulator or select a fully managed, high-performance simulator.
