Annual Report 2020-2022: Research projects in the fields of business, politics and society

Whether analog, digital or hybrid – we have steadily developed our research portfolio over the past three years, including during the Corona pandemic. The following four main topics provide an insight into our research and current challenges.

 

Crisis-proof – Resilience as a success factor

The pitfall of a crisis like the Corona pandemic or the Ukraine war lies in its element of surprise. Many companies were caught unprepared. As in nature, therefore, resilience, i. e. the ability of a system to withstand change, is now crucial for dealing with abrupt changes and for future success.

 

 

Valuable data – Digital value creation in the spotlight

Digitization is changing all areas of life and work – new technologies are emerging and digital skills are changing traditional job profiles. Above all, the systematic collection, analysis, processing and monetization of data holds the potential for optimized processes, additional services, new business models and recurring value creation. In recent years, researchers at Fraunhofer IMW have investigated the potential of data-based value creation, especially for medium-sized companies in Saxony.  

 

Building bridges – Knowledge transfer between business and research

Small and medium-sized companies depend on collaboration with scientists. This is why politicians also want to see a good exchange between business and research, but how does this really work? In recent years, researchers at the Fraunhofer IMW have investigated how companies can find the right scientific research findings and how researchers can find the right industry partners – also internationally – to jointly explore new value creation potentials.

 

Shaping the future – Regional development as an opportunity

Regions, entire industries, politics and society are faced with the challenge of making the transition to a resource-conserving way of working and living. At the same time, this transformation process offers opportunities: a switch to climate-neutral technologies and production methods, future-oriented fields of work and more social participation. In recent years, researchers at Fraunhofer IMW have studied several regional, national and international structural change processes and innovation systems.
