Siemens honors 23 researchers who account for 1,450 inventions

“Research, technology and innovation have held Siemens together for more than 170 years and will continue to be a key link between the three Siemens companies and strengthen the core of the brand,” said Roland Busch, Deputy CEO of Siemens AG. “Our inventors are doing concrete work to address the biggest challenges of our time. They’re laying the groundwork for progress and creating sustainable value for our customers and society, which is Siemens’ purpose.”
Every year since 1995, Siemens has been presenting the Inventor of the Year Award to outstanding researchers and developers within its organization whose inventions have made major contributions to the company’s strong performance. Since 2016, the award has also been presented to researchers from outside the company.
