Lifetime AchievementInventions don’t just fall from the sky, and they’re seldom the result of special flashes of inspiration, says Inventor of the Year Michael Clossen-von Lanken Schulz. His recipe for success is to constantly investigate technologies in all areas of expertise and exchange knowledge with experts in order to come up with ideas for applications. This policy has enabled the Principal Key Expert at Gas and Power to generate 65 individual patents that have made Siemens the world leader in innovative inspection and maintenance procedures for gas- and steam turbines. The 53-year-old won the Inventor of the Year award in the Lifetime Achievement category.
My most important task is to create a space where my team can come up with new ideas and developments.Michael Clossen-von Lanken Schulz, Principal Key Expert at Gas and Power
