The changed production and working conditions emphasise the importance of non-technical innovations, which often cannot be promoted within the framework of the existing technology and innovation programmes of the Federal Government. Open user-related development and implementation processes are becoming increasingly important. The project therefore aims to determine such forms and public funding requirements as well as funding measures in a way that optimises decision-making.

Study presentation & discussion “Non-technical innovations – What impulses does the market provide?
What role does the state have” on 8 December 2016, Rainmaking Loft Berlin
