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.
The Fraunhofer ISI analyzed in the project WAK-MTI the change of autonomy and control which goes hand in hand with new human-technology-interactions. The resulting definitions and research questions can help to conduct an interdisciplinary dialog about the form and role of interactive technologies in everyday life.
The Fraunhofer ISI played a big role in the Computers, Privacy and Data Protection Conference: Dr. Michael Friedewald chaired the panel discussion on do-it-yourself privacy protection. Fraunhofer ISI coordinates the research association "Forum Privacy", which has published a white paper on this topic.
To reach the targets for energy savings and climate protection in buildings more ambitious measures are needed in EU member states. In all EU countries improvements are necessary for the modernization of buildings, when using renewable energy instead of coal and oil to heat and cool buildings and to improve the efficiency of space cooling.
