CO-OPERATIVE RESEARCH IN THE ELECTRICAL INDUSTRY OF GREAT BRITAIN.

Abstract

BOTH the manufacturing and the electricity supply sides of the electrical industry in Britain were highly organised and practising co-operation long before the incorporation of the British Electrical and Allied Industries Research Association. The Institution of Electrical Engineers began co-operative research in 1913. The manufacturers started shortly afterwards. These activities were merged in the 'Electrical Research Committee' in 1917, which adopted the organisation of a research association in 1920 and thus has just passed its jubilee.
