Excerpt from the address of Dipl-Ing. N. Haugg, President of the German Patent and Trade Mark Office:

Distinguished Guests,
A patent office would be, in essence, insignificant, were it not for the people whose ideas, creativity and innovative force provide the basis for industrial property rights, giving substance to this branch of law. We wish to acknowledge achievements that are vital for the efficiency of our economy. It is my particular pleasure to honour outstanding inventors today. Their portraits will enrich the Inventors Gallery of the patent office.
We do not only honour important inventors today to express our gratitude and recognition for their innovative achievements that they have produced in a variety of technical fields. This ceremony should be understood as an incentive for all innovative forces to further expand, and as a signal to business and policy-makers to provide sustainable support and assistance to these innovative forces.
