The research center in Bangalore, India, is also expected to remain open, but those in Shanghai, Munich, Germany, and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil would be shut down. No job cuts would occur in Niskayuna either as part of the reorganization of the research program. *** The moves to close the three research centers abroad are part of a broader effort to rightsize GE's international operations, especially in areas where markets had matured to the point where the research could be better absorbed by the businesses in those countries.

The new CEO is shutting down research centers in Shanghai, Munich and Rio de Janeiro, shifting some of their engineering work into individual business units, the people said. The retrenchment will leave GE, which spent more than $5 billion on research and development last year, with just two global research sites, located in Niskayuna, N.Y., and Bangalore, India.
