Innovations: Open Innovation - Research & Management - Pictures of the Future - Innovation - Home - Siemens Global Website As data flows ever more quickly between research and development and production, innovation cycles are becoming shorter. In this context, an unhindered exchange of information regarding trends and new technologies is becoming ever more important. Many companies have therefore turned to open innovation (OI) as a means of bringing together knowledge from different departments – and even from outside the organization. Open innovation is an established method at Siemens. Online knowledge exchange platforms and idea competitions link the company’s research and development community worldwide. Employees discuss developments together, identify the best ideas, and transform their concepts into market-ready products.

Innovations: Collaboration with Start-ups – Foundation of next47 - Research & Management - Pictures of the Future - Innovation - Home - Siemens Global Website The new unit’s first project, agreed with Airbus in April 2016, is electrification of aviation. The two companies aim to demonstrate the technical feasibility of hybrid/electric propulsion systems for small planes to medium-sized passenger aircraft by 2020. next47 will operate globally and cater to all regions of the world from locations that include Berkeley, Shanghai and Munich. “We’re backed by a strong foundation of start-up activities on which to build,” says Russwurm. Siemens has worked with start-ups for around 20 years.

The Little Book of IDEO I’ve always been proud of IDEO, but I am particularly proud of where we are today. The diversity of our teams and the importance of the projects we do are staggering. Most impressive to me is that IDEO-ers are so smart and talented that when a new project comes in, we can put together a seemingly random team of designers out of who is available in the firm at that time, and in the end, magic happens: breakthrough ideas and happy clients. I am most proud of the culture of the place. When I started the firm that would eventually become IDEO, all I really wanted to do was work with my friends on cool projects. Public – fuseproject In the new landscape of work, technology enables us to work anywhere and interact virtually. Despite this, people continue to work out of the office, because they see the value of face-to-face interaction. Collaboration is a key factor to success, and yet office furniture has not evolved to harness the potential of these interactions. That’s what inspired PUBLIC Office Landscape – our new collection for Herman Miller. PUBLIC transforms every part of the office – including individual desks – into places for collaboration.
