The Chair of Industrial Management proudly launched this year’s Innovation Insights Series on May the 4th with its kick-off guest lecture by Dr. Andreas Volek, Head of Strategic Innovation Management at Diehl.

In his presentation, Dr. Volek elaborated on Diehl’s internal process for the identification of megatrends and their translation into innovation projects. To accomplish this, Diehl uses innovation planning tools such as the so called “Diehl Trend Radar”. Furthermore, Dr. Volek shed light on the opportunities and challenges of hydrogen for industrial usages and illustrated application potentials within Diehl.

After his compelling presentation, our students from the courses “Technology and Innovation Management”, “Industrielles Management” and “Innovation” seized the opportunity to discuss their questions with Dr. Volek.

Prof. Voigt and his entire team once again thank Dr. Volek for his valuable insights on the topic of strategic innovation management. We are already looking forward to welcoming him again in the coming years.
