Innovation in German companies
It is difficult to measure innovation. However, there is a tool that is popular among people. The number of patents can show , to some extent, how good a company is innovating. I would like to share a table that shows the number of patents awarded to some leading German companies like Volkswagen, Daimler, Siemens, Bosch, Continental, Schaeffler. These companies also have very good collaboration with the academia. For example, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Peter Gutzmer is member of the Schaeffler Executive Board and responsible for Research and Development and at the same time he is involved with Institute für Technology (KIT) at Karlsruhe. The research groups in Bosch, Siemens, etc. can seek direct consultation from many renowned professors from academia. There are many professors who have joined the industry at the later part of their career. Many of the professors are actually coming back to industry as they started their career in industry and then moved to academia. This bidirectional interaction has brought benefit for both stakeholders.
Here is the table showing the patents awarded to some German companies.
