Corporate culture | Digitalisation and industry 4.0 | innovation | trends of technology | How do a company with over 200 years of history and digital start-ups fit together? Quite well, says Ufuk Ergen – if the corporate culture is right. Together with colleagues and other companies he created Beyond Conventions. The goal of the event: to enable real cooperation between start-ups and corporations. He told us how it all started. And what companies can learn from start-ups.

Automotive-sector | innovation | mobility of the future | Sustainability and climate protection | Many of us still want to step on the brakes when it comes to car-free city centers. To save our environment and improve our urban life, however, some things just have to change. The positive news is that there are promising alternatives and mobility trends to discover our booming cities quickly, flexibly and sustainably, even without a car.

Digitalisation and industry 4.0 | future of production | innovation | trends of technology | The market for private and semi-professional 3D printers is booming. Now, the new revolutionary processes are also conquering industrial production, under the term "Additive Manufacturing". But what is essential when printing highly sensitive components for industrial machines – instead of action figures? We asked someone who knows: Andreas Stapelmann, Head of the thyssenkrupp TechCenter Additive Manufacturing in Mülheim, Germany.

innovation | Worth knowing | For the most progressive minds in science, the Nobel Prize is the highest honor of their kind – and a highly-contested accolade. The American Edward Kendall, for example, only received the prize 38 years after his first nomination. Ramon Gaston was nominated 155 times, but never received it, despite his pioneering invention of the vaccine against diphtheria and tetanus. However, one thing is certain: those who received the Nobel Prize have made a difference in our world. We present to you the discoveries of five historical award winners who have become an indispensable part of our engineers' everyday lives.
