An Analysis on the Openness of the German Innovation System

innOsci’s mission is to promote the openness of the German innovation system. In order to understand the current challenges and prerequisites for opening up this system, we conducted an analysis on the current situation and visualized it on a map.

Using a systemic methodological approach, we drew on existing studies for this purpose and involved more than 50 actors from the business community, academia, political circles and civic society through qualitative interviews and workshops in a multi-stage process.

The central result was an interactive systems map that illustrates the interrelationships of the innovation system and makes its complexity comprehensible (see embedded map below).

On the overview page of the map (in German) you will find a video recording (in German) of our event from 27.11.20 and the link to a presentation (in German) – both provide information about the map.
