As a globally active group of industrial companies we are called upon to focus on megatrends such as digitalization, automation and artificial intelligence at an early stage. The international WSA network enables us to get external ideas and to access a great circle of young enterprises, innovative start-ups and out-of-the-box thinkers. We are excited that it is our second year cooperating with the WSA for the Josef Umdasch Research Prize. And we are again looking forward to deep dive into the world and spirit of young innovators.
