Radical innovation

Duration January 2015 – January 2016

Cooperation Partner Fraunhofer Center for Resposible Research and Innovation beim IAO, gefördert vom BMBF

The research project faces a semantic and methodical task: Semantically, it requires the development of criteria for evaluating the radicality of ideas by which the existing and the new can be clearly distinguished (sub-project 1). At the same time, it is necessary to develop a methodology for generating ideas that meet these requirements and thus have the potential for radical innovation. In order to promote the implementation of such ideas, it is also necessary to determine the conditions for their realization (sub-project 2). Although each sub-project will produce an independent result, both results will be combined in the collaborative project by using the criteria for assessing the innovation potential of the ideas developed within the method.

Project results can be found here (German).
