Siemens launches new competition to recognize innovation with Simcenter

When was the last time someone looked you in the eyes and said “Congratulations, you’ve done a fantastic job“? If the answer is recently, then great. If not, then we’d like the opportunity to do that.

There’s no question that the past 18 months have been difficult for everyone. Yet despite it all, you’ve come up with new features and ideas to wrap even more innovation into your products. That’s why we would like to recognize excellence where we see it. The Siemens Xcelerator Technology Innovation Awards for Simcenter Simulation and Test celebrates the very best use of Simcenter technologies for innovative design.

There are three categories:

  • Most Innovative – Recognizing excellence in the use of Simcenter to bring products to market faster and more efficiently
  • Excellence in Artistic Visualization – Celebrating the art behind simulation
  • Young Minds for Innovative Design – Recognizing students’ use of Simcenter in projects demonstrating innovation potential in projects with a social and/or environmental impact
