RWTH TIM Team Wins Siemens CKI Idea Contest


The Siemens Center for Knowledge Interchange (CKI) has hosted the annual CKI Conference on November 19th, this year focusing on the topic of innovation management.

Alongside interesting presentations and debates on actual topics of interest, this year for the first time a call for ideas was announced, inviting RWTH students and researchers as well as Siemens employees to propose innovative concepts in four key areas. Wining teams presented their ideas to CKI Conference patrons Prof. Russwurm (Siemens AG) and Prof. Schuh (RWTH WZL) as well as the attending audience.

We are very delighted that one of the concepts chosen by the jury comes from our chair. Fabian Louwen and Dr. Dirk Lüttgens presented a part of our current research, a new idea to develop a method to individually display, construct and optimize business models.
