Linde Digital Base Camp named ‘Best Innovation Lab 2018’


The Linde Group has been named ‘Best Innovation Lab 2018’ for its Digital Base Camp, also ranking number one in the category ‘Industry’.

In addition to coming top in the category ‘Industry’, the Linde Digital Base Camp was ranked among the top four innovation labs out of almost 60 German companies that were analysed in this study.

“We are delighted by this award and it further strengthens our commitment to systematically driving our digitalisation strategy,” said Dr. Christian Bruch, Member of the Executive Board of Linde AG responsible for Innovation and Digitalisation. “One thing is clear: digitalisation is a game-changer for industrial companies such as Linde, and we want to be in the best possible position to capitalise on these changes. Leveraging data intelligently is thus at the heart of everything we do at the Digital Base Camp. We want to harness data assets to further improve internal Group processes, for example, and to develop new services for customers.”

To bundle digitalisation efforts and anchor them throughout the company, Linde established its Digital Base Camp in August 2016. The digitalisation team comprises, on the one hand, employees who have already gained multiple years of experience working in Linde’s traditional lines of business and, on the other, data specialists, software developers and experts who have joined Linde from the digital community. The team is rounded out with specialists from technology start-ups and universities (for example the Technical University of Munich) and with partners from innovation platforms that Linde has formed alliances with such as STARTUP AUTOBAHN powered by Plug and Play.
