It would be great if someone at Schneider Electric were willing to talk. Usually it's just one or two people at a firm who are interested in applied category theory... but that's all it takes for something to happen! Arquimedes Canedo not only gave my student Blake a summer internship at Siemens, he's also looking for more math students to work on applied category theory as interns there. I haven't managed to get any of my students to do it this summer, mainly because I found this out so late.
