Scientific accompanying research of the program 'next generation media'

On behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi), the implementation of the development and test projects in the eleven collaborative projects is analyzed, the coherence of the individual projects within the overall program is ensured and the project results are evaluated for rapid dissemination to the public. A further focus is the support of cooperation efforts of the individual projects among themselves and with their environment as well as the participation in preparatory measures for economic exploitation. The accompanying research is based on the formative evaluation approach: During the entire project period, the results of the analysis are fed back to the eleven collaborative projects and the Ministry. It thus contributes to the optimization of the ongoing project work.
