The best European technology leaders awarded

15 Oct 2015

Martin Curley of Intel Corporation, Marcel Wubbolts of Royal DSM and Jonathan O’Halloran of QuantuMDx have been awarded as European CTOs of the Year. All three are inspiring leaders who have paid special attention to sustainability and the creation of strong and broad technology collaboration communities. Based on their foresighted technology leadership, Europe has reached the forefront in three very different industries.

Specifically, with the inspired technical leadership Prof. Curley has provided, Intel researchers in Europe have made a number of significant contributions to Intel Future Technologies. Dr. Wubbolts of Royal DSM has laid the foundation for the growing number of bio-based manufacturing processes in a company that over the past two decades has transformed itself completely from a petrochemical to a life and materials sciences company active in health, nutrition and materials and a leading biotech player. Finally, the SME category winner, Mr. O’Halloran, has developed a technology that is expected to change the face of healthcare globally and save millions of lives.

European CTO of the Year is the leading European award honouring excellence in technology and innovation leadership, awarded by EIRMA (European Industrial Research Management Association) and Spinverse. “The European CTO of the Year Award is a unique way to recognize outstanding individuals whose vision and passion have made a big difference in keeping their companies at the forefront of innovation. All the winners have shown exemplary leadership as technology managers, we’re happy and proud to recognize them for their impressive accomplishments.”, states Dr. Carlos Härtel, jury member and Director at GE Global Research Europe.
