According to the auto parts maker, it joined MIT’s Industrial Liaison Program, a program dedicated to promoting mutually-beneficial relationships between MIT and corporations worldwide, early this year.

The program offers access to a range of technologies in development or developed by researchers at more than 300 research labs operated by MIT. The program also matches up partnering companies with a pool of start-ups founded by MIT alumni.

The partnership organized a lecture on Friday by Michael Schrage, a research fellow at MIT’s Sloan School Center for Digital Business. The subject was next-generation technologies. Some 50 managers of Hyundai Mobis attended.
