Fraunhofer Institute for Systems and Innovation Research (ISI)

The Fraunhofer Institute for Systems and Innovation Research ISI carries out research for practical applications in seven competence centers with a total of 28 business units and aims to be an independent thought leader supporting society, politics and business. In its work, the Fraunhofer ISI not only applies a broad spectrum of advanced scientific theories, models, methods and social science assessment tools, but also continuously develops these using the empirical findings from the research projects carried out. For its clients, the institute examines the scientific, economic, ecological, social, organizational, legal and political conditions that give rise to innovations and their subsequent effects.

The Fraunhofer ISI uses scientifically substantiated analysis, evaluation and forecasting methods. Its assessments of the potentials and limitations of technical, organizational or institutional innovations help decision-makers from business, science and politics to set a strategic course and therefore support them in creating a favorable environment for innovation.
