The Fraunhofer Institute for Systems and Innovation Research ISI analyzes the origins and impacts of innovations. We research the short- and long-term developments of innovation processes and the impacts of new technologies and services on society. On this basis, we are able to provide our clients from industry, politics and science with recommendations for action and perspectives for key decisions. Our expertise is founded on our scientific competence as well as an interdisciplinary and systemic research approach.
The EU Commission has introduced the De-risking Energy Efficiency Platform. Based on more than 7,800 measures and actions that have already been implemented, this free benchmarking website enables businesses, investors and political decision-makers to assess which investments in energy efficiency are particularly worth making. The Fraunhofer ISI played a decisive role in developing this platform by providing thousands of data sets.
One research project of the Fraunhofer ISI explored how Germany, China, Italy, Japan and Switzerland are dealing with the impacts of demographic change on their societies. The objective of the project that was funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) is to learn from the experiences of other countries also affected by demographic change.
The project "Evaluating increased efficiency in care documentation" examines the quality and efficiency of a documentation system introduced in Germany in 2015 to reduce bureaucracy in nursing care. Based on the findings, recommendations on how the further introduction and use of the documentation system can be optimized are to be developed.
