Innovation strategies of selected German multinationals in India

Thursday, September 13th, 2012

Recently, René Neukirchner, student at TUHH carried out a study of “Innovation strategies of selected German multinationals in India” under the aegis of Research Project Global Innovation. The study carried out under supervision of Rajnish Tiwari was presented at the September meeting of German-Indian Round Table in Hamburg:

“On this occasion Mr. René Neukirchner, student at Hamburg University of Technology, will present results of a study of innovation strategies pursued by some of the largest German companies in India, which include BASF, Bosch, Daimler, SAP and Siemens. The study looks at a unique combination of “global innovation” with “open innovation”. It examines which projects are being pursued by those firms and to what extent they are engaged in research collaboration with local Indian partners. The underlying idea is to learn from such strategies and to reduce market risk and technology uncertainty.”

Those interested may download the study results as PDF, approx. 2 MB.

The Hindu Business Line recommends reading Rajnish Tiwari’s article on Indian investments in Germany

Monday, February 13th, 2012

In an article titled “The horizon vocabulary” journalist D. Murali of The Hindu Business Line, a renowned newspaper from India, recommends reading an article (“Investment Destination Germany: Chances & Challenges for Indian Firms“) written by Rajnish Tiwari, Head of German-Indian Round Table in Hamburg:

Investment opportunities in Germany

In a significant contrast to their Chinese counterparts, Indian firms have so far tended to prefer developed Western countries for their investments, notes Rajnish Tiwari, Head of the German-Indian Round Table (GIRT) in Hamburg. Germany, along with the US and the UK, has emerged as a primary target for Indian FDI, he adds, in Investment destination Germany: Chances & challenges for Indian firms (www.ssrn.com). “With its established technological prowess, high-quality infrastructure and reliable institutional set-up, Germany is regarded as an excellent investment target by many Indian firms in their pursuit of newest technologies and commercially viable cutting-edge innovations,” Tiwari reasons.

The paper concedes that, since many Indian companies prefer to channelise their FDI projects to Germany through their existing domestic subsidiaries or through their daughter concerns in other European countries, the official data fail to capture the true extent of Indian engagement in Germany.

Tiwari urges Indian firms, therefore, to take advantage of Germany’s excellent physical infrastructure and technological know-how, including in the eastern part, while combining it with their own strengths in production, marketing, low-cost engineering, and business model innovations. Provides pointers that you may like to explore in detail.
