Henkel receives Research/Technology Invention Award
Jan '08
The jurors of the Research/Technology Invention Award 2007 found it no easy task to pick the winners among more than 20 highly promising projects.

Finally, eight interdisciplinary project teams were chosen to receive the coveted prize. The diversity of the inventions reflects the powerful research capabilities within Henkel and the broad scope of its scientific base.

Although to many they are simply articles of daily use, high-performance laundry detergents, household cleaners, cosmetics, and adhesives rely strongly on the results of research into innovative key technologies.

These range from white biotechnology, molecular biology, nanotechnology, material sciences and chemistry to digital image processing and other engineering disciplines.

This diversity was also demonstrated by the eight project teams that were honored with the Research/Technology Invention Award 2007.

Prof. Dr. Ulrich Lehner, Chairman of the Management Board of Henkel KGaA, and Dr. Wolfgang Gawrisch, Chief Technology Officer (CTO) Research/Technology, presented the awards to the research teams during a ceremony in Düsseldorf on January 21.

In selecting the winning projects, the jury based its decision mainly on the far-reaching benefits for customers and consumers as well as the degree of inventiveness.

“When large-scale research projects result in new brands and technologies or improvements that bring significant and tangible benefits to customers and consumers, this is clear proof of exceptional research and development work,” said Lehner, praising the award-winners.

“At the same time, the projects honored here show that the Years of Innovation launched Henkel-wide in 2006 have inspired our people to take a fresh look at familiar topics and to strike out into completely new research areas.”

Gawrisch emphasized the importance of key technologies for innovative research: “In the fields relating to Henkel's core domains, our industrial researchers and developers can rival the top researchers in the academic world.”

The winners of the Research/Technology Invention Award 2007 also showed that “outstanding results can only be achieved when experts look beyond their own horizons and use their knowledge to network intelligently in interdisciplinary teams.”
