SystemInnovations are technology-based innovations that can translate into economically viable and socially acceptable products or services. The iit supports analytical processes of SystemInnovations through its own research, studies, good practice examples and policy recommendations.


The iit offers proper assessments of innovation policy measures which can contribute to their optimisation. Thereby, we survey and assess individual measures and programmes - always in relation to the entire innovation system.

Innovation Systems and Support Instruments

The iit has a longtime experience in the analysis and evaluation of innovation systems as well as in the identification of strengths, weaknesses and possible strategies and fields of development. Furthermore, we advise, consult and support political and economic players with respect to the design of new instruments to promote innovation.

Technology Assessment

We offer public players, stakeholders, companies, associations, research institutions and organisations the full array of consulting services in the area of technology assessment and technology foresight. Our objective is to use a multi-facetted toolbox to assist our customers in innovation processes, strategy development and future planning by opening up new perspectives.

Education and Innovation

Education and skill level of the workforce are important determinants of how successful businesses are in terms of innovation and therefore also constitute a measure for the competitiveness of national economies. The iit offers professional consultancy in the areas of securing skilled labour in times of demographic change, technical education and diversity, permeability of the education system and innovation indicators.
