Realizing Impact – Radical innovations Follow-up Project

Duration January 2016 – January 2020

Project Manager René John

Funder BMBF

Cooperation Partner Fraunhofer Center for Responsible Research and Innovation beim IAO sowie dem Institut für Rechtsmedizin Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin

In cooperation with the Fraunhofer Center for Responsible Research and Innovation at the IAO and the Institute for Forensic Medicine Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin, funded by the BMBF (2016-2019).

The aim of the project is to develop measures, methods and tools to promote the emergence of radical innovations in the interaction between the various actors of an innovation system and within organizations. These innovations, which represent a radical break with conventional structures, cannot be generated in day-to-day business. In order to test and further develop the developed measures, methods and tools, they are applied in the field of health prevention for fugitives.
Subproject 2, for which ISInova is responsible, develops a tool to identify the radical potential of ideas and to control the subsequent typically risky decision-making processes. The tool will be implemented computer-based. This project continues the work of the exploratory project “Radikale Innovation” . Here you can find the project flyer.
