Shaping the future through innovation

Analysing, structuring and encouraging innovation processes at the ifi

Innovation has become the most frequently used catchphrase at the corporate, organisational and political level. Occasionally, the impression is created that expanding innovation rhetoric is becoming a substitute for real innovations. 

The ifi starts its work beyond this programmatic alliance for innovation and deals with the creation and improvement of innovation processes.

Characteristic for the work at the ifi is a research approach that combines academic developmental work and practice.

With this profile the ifi does research projects, scientific analysis, studies and workshops for ministries, foundations, associations and companies.
