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.

Scientists from Fraunhofer ISI and KIT (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology) have compared the performance of battery electric and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles in Germany and the US. The results have now been published in the journal “Scientific Reports”.
Research into rare diseases is often difficult for medical and economic reasons. At the same time, there are hardly any studies in health research that involve citizens actively in the research process as it is in Citizen Science projects. A new study under the direction of Fraunhofer ISI tackles both problems and comprehensively involves rare disease sufferers and their relatives.
