Siemens honors twelve inventors - R&D investments to increase by EUR500 million 2011.11.26

Munich, Germany - November 23, 2011 - In fiscal 2011, Siemens generated 8,600 inventions, nearly 40 per working day - a ten percent increase year-over-year. The number of invention reports per Siemens R&D employee (current R&D workforce: 27,800) has doubled in the last ten years. Initial patent applications filed by the company rose to 4,300, nearly 20 per working day - a 15 percent increase over the previous year. In Europe, Siemens was Number 1 in patent applications for the first time.

12 Inventors of the Year 2011 are honored
Last fiscal year Siemens increased the number of inventions registered by its employees to approximately 8,600 — that amounts to 40 per workday.
A major contribution to this figure was made by 12 particularly successful researchers and developers, whom Siemens honored as "Inventors of the Year 2011" at a ceremony in Munich on November 22. In recent years these inventors have been responsible for a combined total of 730 registered inventions and 636 individual patents.
"Every day they demonstrate a pioneering spirit, entrepreneurial thinking, and international teamwork. These are exactly the factors we need in order to be successful in the world markets both now and in the future," said Siemens CEO Peter Löscher at the award ceremony.

Löscher also announced that Siemens' R&D investments in fiscal 2012 would exceed the previous year's level (€3.9 billion) by about €500 million.

With 2,135 patent applications, Siemens ranked Number 1 in the European Patent Office's current patent statistics (calendar year 2010) for the first time in its history, outpacing Philips, BASF and Samsung.

Dr. Thorsten Feiweier - Inventors of the Year 2011
Faster diagnosis of stroke
Diffusion imagery by means of magnetic resonance technology is particularly easy on patients, but the images it produces were previously difficult to interpret. Thanks to the developments made by Dr. Thorsten Feiweier, diffusion images are now very precise. For example, circulatory disorders after a stroke can be identified in detail. Feiweier is a researcher at Siemens Healthcare in Erlangen, Germany.

"In Germany and Europe combined, we increased our initial patent applications by 18 percent year-over-year," said Klaus Helmrich, member of Siemens' Managing Board and Chief Technology Officer of Siemens AG.
"Siemens' R&D employees are also more innovative than ever at the global level. On average, they're now reporting twice as many inventions per R&D employee as in 2001."

Dr. Rainer Graumann - Inventors of the Year 2011
Precise navigation during an operation
The inventions of Dr. Rainer Graumann are making surgeons' work easier. He has already developed numerous improvements for surgical procedures that are guided by images and navigation devices. The use of a C-arm (shown in the photo) to record images during an operation now makes it possible to calculate the positions of the instruments in the patient's body more simply and reliably than before. Graumann is a researcher at Siemens Healthcare Diagnostics and lives in Erlangen, Germany.

The twelve Inventors of the Year for 2011 hail from Germany (Berlin, Erlangen, Munich and Nuremberg), Denmark, Switzerland and the U.S.
Because of their patents, a host of innovative products are now making industry more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly.

For example, some of the new products are making the conversion of seawater into drinking water much more energy-efficient, others are increasing the lifetimes of wind turbines, and still others are enhancing the effectiveness of motors and power plants.

Dr. Anand Natrajan - Inventors of the Year 2011
Luminous molecules for immunoassays
Dr. Anand Natrajan does research on molecules that emit light in the presence of certain specific chemical reactions. These molecules are used in automated immunoassay diagnostics. Thanks to Natrajan's inventions of new molecule structures, Siemens systems quickly and reliably deliver the results of tests for hepatitis, tumor markers, heart disease, endocrine disorders and anemia. Natrajan, who works at Siemens Healthcare, lives in New Hampshire, U.S.

Thanks to innovative software architecture, new products are also reducing resource consumption in industrial production by facilitating the design of complex automation systems

And in the healthcare area, an innovation created by one of the award winners is making it easier to diagnose strokes: the new technology can improve the quality of MRI images in such a way that physicians can detect the extent of brain damage and identify brain tissue that can be saved.

Ronald Lange - Inventors of the Year 2011
A software platform for industry
Software is playing an ever greater role in industrial production. Siemens has now developed an engineering framework that combines all automation software tools in a single development environment. All of the data of an automation system, whether it's for design, configuration or fault diagnosis, can now be interchanged, processed, and reused. Ronald Lange played a major role in the development software architecture of the TIA Portal (shown in the photo). He works at Siemens Industry in Nuremberg, Germany.

"With every idea, every invention and every patent, our researchers and developers are laying another cornerstone for our continued growth," said Peter Löscher.
"Pioneering spirit is our lifeblood – we need people like these who want to make a difference, who are committed and creative, who break new ground and who search for and find answers to the toughest questions of our time."

Bernd Pfannschmidt - Inventors of the Year 2011
Cool ventilation for more efficient electric motors
Using a new cooling system, Bernd Pfannschmidt has improved the electric traction motor used in mining trucks in such a way that it produces 45 percent more power. Air flows through pipes positioned opposite one another (shown in the photo). As it does so, it cools the winding overheads and end rings on both sides of the disk-shaped electric motor. The huge open-pit mining dump trucks, which can weigh up to 630 tons when fully loaded, can now handle steep inclines without overheating their motors. Pfannschmidt works at Siemens Industry in Nuremberg, Germany.

Creativity at Work - The Siemens Inventors of the Year 2011


Dr. Götz Neumann - Inventors of the Year 2011
Lightning-fast protection for power grids
Whenever a fault occurs in a state-of-the-art power grid, the system's automatic defenses need to go into action literally faster than lightning. Safety devices shut down defective grid segments within 20 milliseconds in order to prevent damage to the network and its transformers. Dr. Götz Neumann has invented a technique that enables the various modules of a cutoff device to engage completely time-synchronously in well under a millisecond. This is especially important in smart grid energy networks. Neumann works at the Siemens Infrastructure & Cities Sector in Berlin, Germany.
