Awarded: Bilfinger Digital Next among the best Innovation Labs in Germany

  • Bilfinger’s digital corporate start-up was awarded the rating "Very Good" in a 2021 study on the Best Innovation Labs in the category core-business-related innovations
  • The management consultancy Infront Consulting & Management presented the award together with Capital for the fifth time in a row
  • In the disciplines of growth, speed, and commercial success, Bilfinger Digital Next achieved the top rating of four stars

Bilfinger Digital Next was awarded the rating "Very Good" in the category of industry and innovations close to core business by the management consultancy Infront together with the business magazine Capital in a 5th edition of the “Corporations on the Trail of Startups” study. For this study, digital labs of established companies in the DACH region were evaluated.

Bilfinger Digital Next – the corporate start-up of the leading international industrial services provider Bilfinger – develops innovative, data-driven business models through the unique combination of state-of-the-art technologies in the area of IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) and many years of industry expertise, thus supporting customers in the process industry with their digital transformation.

„We are very proud to be recognized as one of the best digital labs in Germany. When we were founded in 2018, many ideas and concepts were still in an early stage. This award shows that we have grown as an interdisciplinary team, making an important contribution to the core business of our cooperation. Our goal is to further drive the digital transformation in the process industry,“

says Franz Braun, CEO of Bilfinger Digital Next and Chief Digital Officer of Bilfinger SE.

Infront Management Consulting examined 49 digital labs in the categories of ‘innovations far from the core business’ and ‘innovations close to the core business’. The decisive factor was whether Bilfinger Digital Next is able to implement innovations that directly adjoin and thus catalyze the established business model of the parent company Bilfinger with growth and potential, with speed and commercial success. Bilfinger Digital Next was able to secure 8th place among 17 such top digital labs in the industry sub-category.
