Siemens zeichnet Erfinder des Jahres 2016 aus / Siemens honors the Inventors of the Year 2016
Siemens honored once again in Munich some ingenious researchers as Inventors of the Year. The winners of the 2016 award – ten scientists from Germany, Austria, the U.S and Denmark – are together responsible for some 558 invention disclosures and 597 individual patents. «Research in the 21st century can’t take place in an ivory tower – said Joe Kaeser, CEO of the German company. – The magic words are ‘open innovation’ – innovation today is a team sport. For this reason, the award, which has been presented to the company’s outstanding researchers and developers annually since 1995, has greater importance than ever.» New Talents, Outstanding Innovation, Lifework and Open Innovation are the categories in which inventors who have made a major contribution to the company’s success will be honored.
