The Fraunhofer Institute for Systems and Innovation Research ISI analyzes the origins and impacts of innovations. We research the short- and long-term developments of innovation processes and the impacts of new technologies and services on society. On this basis, we are able to provide our clients from industry, politics and science with recommendations for action and perspectives for key decisions. Our expertise is founded on our scientific competence as well as an interdisciplinary and systemic research approach.
Some 630 million people live in the ten member states of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). Between 2007 and 2015, there was enormous growth in the economy here, by 5.3 percent per year on average – and the demand for energy is also rising as a result. How to deal with this is shown by the fifth ASEAN Energy Outlook, which the Fraunhofer ISI and the ASEAN Centre for Energy (ACE) presented during the Ministers and CEO dialogue at the 35th ASEAN Ministers on Energy Meeting (AMEM).
In May 2018, the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will enter into force. This requires companies and public authorities to carry out data protection impact assessments (DPIA) in certain cases. In this context, a new BMBF-funded project led by Fraunhofer ISI is testing a process for carrying out impact assessments.
In the eWayBW project, the German Federal Ministry for the Environment is funding construction of a test route in the Murgtal near Karlsruhe from September 2017. There are still many unresolved questions concerning the operation of such trucks. A consortium coordinated by Fraunhofer ISI is studying research questions as part of the scientific accompanying research.
