Siemens Invites Community to Participate in Online Exhibition for Supplier Innovation
Innovation has been the lifeblood of Siemens for more than 165 years. Together with NineSigma’s Open Innovation portal, they have connected with partners who play a vital role across many of their business units. This year, many of the projects have focussed on Supply Chain Innovation. One of the first projects for this new initiative was on sustainable packaging materials. In an effort to reduce the need and waste of plastic packaging, Siemens engaged the NineSights community to help find solutions for alternative packaging materials to replace PE-foil that is currently used to package switchgear and components.
Siemens has organized a Supplier Innovation exhibition to be held online. Since the responses to this project were trend-setting, all of the responders have since been invited to participate in the online exhibition. In addition, they found that the ideas could make an important contribution to environmental protection in other business areas at Siemens. In the following weeks, a new Innovation Field will be available with a focus on environmental protection and recyclable packaging.
This could be an excellent starting point for a joint journey towards an exciting and fascinating technology partnership.
