Kimberly-Clark has joined Georgia Tech's Center for the Development and Application of Internet of Things Technologies (CDAIT). As a member of this non-profit center with a seat on the Executive Advisory Board, Kimberly-Clark will help guide research into the rapidly evolving Internet of Things (IoT) marketplace that addresses critical societal issues.

Kimberly-Clark, a manufacturer of health and hygiene products that are available in over 175 countries, is building on its long-standing partnership with Georgia Tech, dating back more than 35 years. The two organisations have partnered from a research perspective, and Kimberly-Clark sponsors key programmes within the institution including Women in Engineering, the Renewable BioProducts Institute, the Center for Bio-Inspired Design, and the Institute for Electronics and Nanotechnology. Kimberly-Clark employs more than 100 Georgia Tech alumni.

"We are looking forward to actively collaborating with Kimberly-Clark's experts in the IoT space," said Alain Louchez, managing director of CDAIT. "In particular, their significant involvement in the IoT Security and Privacy Working Group will provide a very useful perspective in a complex and critical area."

Currently, CDAIT's activities are focused on horizontal domains through six Working Groups, i.e., education and training; start-up ecosystem; thought leadership, security & privacy; standards & management; and research.

"Kimberly-Clark has a strong track record of transforming insights and technologies into innovative products and services that improve the lives of nearly a quarter of the world's population. By partnering closely with our fellow CDAIT board members and Georgia Tech's faculty and students, we aim to build on this history of innovation and explore the many dimensions of IoT and their applicability in today's world," said Clay Mahaffey, global R&D director for Kimberly-Clark Professional.

"We are honoured to welcome Kimberly-Clark to our board," said Jeff Evans, chair of the CDAIT executive advisory board and director of the information and communications laboratory at the Georgia Tech Research Institute. "With their experience and expertise, we'll keep pushing IoT research and insights even further." (KD)
