Siemens is teaming up for the third time with the Stiftung Jugend forscht to host Germany's best-known youth competition. The company previously hosted the nationwide event in 1976 and 1997.
Today, as every year, Siemens will honor in Munich particularly ingenious researchers as Inventors of the Year. The winners of this year's 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. "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.
