Globalization, climate change and digitization represent the major challenges of our time. As highly interconnected and integral elements of innovation and value creation systems, the subsystems of science, business and society are exposed to constant and high pressure to undergo transformation as a result of these megatrends. This drives our interest in knowledge and our will to research. We develop solutions for business, politics and society.
The scientists of the "Regional Development and Innovation Policy" division analyze, evaluate and develop instruments for shaping regional transformation processes and innovation policy interventions. Based on current scientific methods and findings, they support clients and partners from politics, science, society and business in the strategic planning and design of their future cooperation, transfer and funding activities. In this way, they contribute to closing the gaps between research and practice and to solving societal and economic challenges - from conception to implementation.
