The major transformation topics of our time, the big Ds – digitalisation, decarbonisation, and also demographic change – call for us to look even more thoroughly for new, sustainable solutions to address these future challenges. Innovations are key to this.
Flanked by the innovation strategy and its industrial policy model, North Rhine-Westphalia has initiated numerous measures to ensure successful industrial transformation. Prognos was commissioned by the North Rhine-Westphalian Ministry of Economy, Industry, Climate Protection, and Energy to set up and operate the “NRW.innovativ” competence centre. The centre is to function as an interface between actors from all sectors of society that have an impact on innovation. Within the framework of the NRW innovation agenda, Prognos is working on this project with partners Imp3rove, Fraunhofer ISI, Eurada, and the GiftGrün agency. The project will run from July 2021 to December 2024.
Prognos is responsible for the main areas of work relating to the efficient networking of nationwide innovation actors, the strategic support of regional stakeholders, and the development of lighthouse projects for the NRW innovation location.
