Corporate Technology

Shaping the future with a passion for research, technology and innovation.

For nearly 170 years, pioneering technologies and the business models developed from them have been the foundation of Siemens‘ success. Our central research and development unit – Corporate Technology (CT) – plays an important role in this.

A worldwide presence lies at the heart of the Siemens brand – and that goes for Corporate Technology as well. That presence enables us to quickly offer targeted solutions that are tailored to regional requirements.

Together with its global network of experts, CT is a strategic partner to Siemens’ operative units. It provides important services along the entire value chain – from research and development to production and quality assurance, as well as optimized business processes. The support provided to the businesses in their research and development activities is ideally balanced with CT’s own future-oriented research.

Pioneer in research and development – our areas of activity

Under the leadership of the Chief Technology Officer and in partnership with the operating units, CT develops Siemens’ technology and innovation strategy, creates and industrializes basic technologies, promotes business excellence through consulting and engineering services, and protects the company’s intellectual property.

Siemens’ central research and development arm sees itself as a strategic partner to the company’s businesses. It plays a key role in achieving and maintaining leading competitive positions in the fields of electrification and automation while at the same time helping Siemens fully tap into the growth field of digitalization.

To ensure the success of these efforts, numerous experts around the world make their outstanding knowledge available to the company:

  • Some 1,600 researchers based in North America, Europe, and Asia are hard at work on technologies that will have a broad impact on Siemens businesses, helping them successfully establish their innovations on the market.
  • Some 5,300 software engineers spread across Asia, Europe, and the United States, helping the business units combine the real and virtual worlds with innovative software products and solutions.
  • Finally, some 260 professionals drive business excellence at Siemens, helping to enhance the speed, agility, and efficiency of our company.
