MUNICH, GERMANY: The Linde Group has partnered with Startup Autobahn, an innovation platform powered by Plug and Play at Stuttgart and Singapore hubs, and with Plug and Play's energy cluster in Sunnyvale, US.

Based in Stuttgart, Startup Autobahn connects over 30 start-ups with a host of partners from industry and from the research and scientific community to create Europe’s largest innovation network.

Collaboration with Plug and Play’s global network will give Linde much wider access to the extremely dynamic start-up scene, especially in the field of digitalisation. Working with young entrepreneurs, Linde will thus be able to rapidly resolve concrete problems during the development of new products and services for its customers and also identify and tap into new growth fields.

Just recently, for example, Linde teamed up with a start-up specialised in artificial intelligence to develop a digital solution that can help reliably predict and avoid risks that could arise during the transport of gases to customers by truck. The algorithm was programmed from a huge pool of in-house and external data, enabling it to calculate the safest possible transport routes. The system is already being used in the UK. Linde is also currently working with start-ups on a number of other projects in areas such as augmented reality and virtual reality.

“Driving digitalisation to re-define our business, technology and culture is key for Linde. Building on our digital accelerators in Munich, and in Singapore, which bundle our Group-wide digitalisation activities, the new Plug and Play partnership is an important building block in Linde’s far-reaching digitalisation strategy – designed to maintain our competitive edge moving forward,” said Dr Christian Bruch, COO and member of the executive board of Linde AG.

“We are eager to enhance our successful track record of working with different start-ups, accelerator platforms and networks. This new collaboration enables us to systematically expand our digitalisation engagement, elevating it to the global stage,” added Philipp Karmires, head of digitalisation at The Linde Group.
