 Cloud computing in industrial applications: For which industrial applications does a (quantifiable) use arise from it? Which are the typical applications in verticals like automotive, food & beverage, chemical and pharma. Which partners (business ecosystem) are necessary to transact a complete application? Which partner in the ecosystem has which benefit? Which business models are used? Where are the cost drivers? Which kind of cost arising? - Total cost of ownership


 

Siemens Energy is a strong market player in the wind business. A major investment for a wind on-shore construction is related to the tower. How do you see improvements for even higher constructions as of today with less cost? Consider also logistical requirement for the transport. Transmission technology is a major portfolio element of Siemens Energy up to voltage levels above 800kV. Beside point-to-point connections it is the vision to establish one day an HVDC grid. A first application field could be the North Sea connecting various winds off shore parks. What are the major development steps? Where do you see hurdles?

 The aging population: What can we do to look into new solutions for the challenge of the imbalance between human resources and the aging development? How do we ensure a high life quality for our elders? How do we make sure that good health care is affordable in the future for the coming generations?

Infrastucture & Cities:
 In the year 2009 more than 50% of the world’s population lives in cities. And this trend is still ongoing, the urban population will increase to 4.7 billion in the year 2030. On the other side, cities consume two-thirds of the world's energy, 60% of its drinking water and produce up to 70% of its CO2 emissions. To counteract on the actual problems, new installations could solve the problem or existing infrastructure like roads could be utilized in a more homogeneous way, i.e. with less traffic jams. How could citizen contribute to a better city, e.g. by organizing themselves with social networks?
