About us

The Institute for Innovation and Technology (iit) offers a wide variety of scientifically based, decision- and action-oriented services that contribute to the analysis, forecasting, evaluation, design, promotion and communication of technological as well as non-technological innovations.

The iit is a cross-sectional institution of the VDI/VDE Innovation + Technik GmbH (VDI/VDE-IT). More than 40 years of experience of project management of the parent organization VDI/VDE-IT thus flow into the work of the iit.
