Siemens Selects Knovel to Support Professional Development of Engineers Worldwide

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- Jun 11, 2012 -- Knovel, the leading provider of a Web-based application integrating technical information with analytical and search tools, today announced Siemens, the global powerhouse in electronics and electrical engineering, now provides access to Knovel's Web-based technical references to its 30,000 engineers and scientists worldwide. With interactive and validated content across 28 subject areas, the engineers have convenient access to a wide range of information useful in product design and development including guidance, best practices and materials selection.

Dr. Gerhard Zorn, Head of Information Research, based at Siemens headquarters in Munich, considers the introduction of new information methods into the company as one of his unit's key tasks. Part of an innovation project, Dr. Zorn anticipates that Knovel will be of particular benefit to young engineers and recent graduates working in Research & Development to boost their professional development. He commented, "I used to be a materials researcher, and I would certainly have found Knovel a very useful resource then."

Siemens is an integrated technology company with business and products focused on four Sectors: Energy, Healthcare, Industry and Infrastructure & Cities. Under the Siemens Centre for Knowledge Interchange Program, the company works closely with a global network of universities from which it regularly employs graduates. These universities include the Technical University, Munich, Technical University of Denmark, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Tsinghua University in Beijing, where students have access to and use Knovel in their studies.

Dr. Zorn observed, "There are clearly advantages for students making the transition from university into the workplace if they are used to working with the same research tools."

"Siemens has a long history of innovative engineering achievements, and it continues to lead in innovation-driven markets," said Andy Brown, Knovel's Director of Corporate Sales - EMEA. "Knowledge drives innovation. Knovel enables engineers to save time as they seek answers to technical questions, learn about new technologies, validate best practices and otherwise build their knowledge bases. Learning is a lifelong process, and access to Knovel facilitates professional development for engineers."
