As part of the lecture series "Strategic Technology & Innovation Management", this semester's students had the pleasure of welcoming Dr. Thorsten Kettner, Innovation & IP Manager at Wilo Group. The Wilo Group is a multinational technology group and one of the world's leading premium suppliers of pumps and pump systems for building services, water management and industry. Around 50 students took part in the event, in which Dr. Kettner explained Wilo's approach to innovation and provided examples. In particular, he gave us exciting insights into the innovation culture, which has won several awards. After his lecture, Dr. Kettner answered the many interested questions of our students. We would like to thank Dr. Kettner for his informative guest lecture!
