Corporate Technology Foresight

Future technologies and innovation research

We Help to Find Answers for Your Organization’s Strategic Questions.

Our special focus is on research into innovation and the technologies of the future. Long years of experience in the early identification of tomorrow’s technologies and planning for the future make our team a reliable partner for you.

Together with our excellent team, we can also address even broader ranges of questions that impact you, e. g. questions from the economy or society. Tailored to your specific needs, we draw up analyses and use technology-oriented foresight methods, like roadmapping and the scenario technique. This lets us expand any short-term perspective already in your sights for the next 3 to 5 years, up to the long-term perspective from 5 to 20 years. Or we can analyze the whole of your timeframe. Working together, we can identify the future technologies of meaning for you; we can evaluate them and highlight technological white spots, or break down complex technologies and their specific implications for your company. With this information from us, we create a real possibility to generate a scientific basis, a foundation for the ongoing development of your long-term technology strategies.

Technology Monitoring

What future scenarios does my company need to be ready for?

What concrete trends and developments in technology - especially in the next 5 to 20 years – will impact my company; what can we expect?

What other relevant aspects are there - social, economic, for example - that will lead to technological developments?

We help you to recognize tomorrow’s developments in technology, to analyze them and to integrate the results in your strategic planning.

Future Technology Trends

Thinking about the future’s technology trends that can impact and fundamentally change competition?

The growing interdependency of different technological developments can also affect your company.

We give you regular updates of new trends and developments: those already taking the first steps in basic or applied research, or those about to be launched on the market.

Strategic Decisions call for Best-in-Class Information

The broad-based methods portfolio in our Corporate Technology Foresight generates for you a tailor-made, neutral and sustainable consultancy package. With our unique, comprehensive Technology Radar, we give you significant impulses to help you penetrate the diversity jungle, identify the technology trends of greatest importance for you, and put you ahead of your competitors.

Technology Foresight Methods

Using various methodological approaches, we endeavor to place possible future trends and developments in a company context and highlight their significance. The result enables our clients to opt for the best course of action. Typical for our services are developing future scenarios, technology foresight and technology analyses, both qualitative and quantitative. Beyond this, we also produce assessments of future technologies, in particular to be able to compare them with existing technology portfolios. And we compare existing short-term technology strategy with long-term developments in the technology landscape. Special for this last service is close cooperation with the client, and the use of such participation platforms as focus groups, workshops or interviews.

 

Technology Analyses

We put our heads together with you, to first identify the technology fields relevant for you and your company. We then launch the technology analysis

 

Technology Radar

With our technology radar, we can help you to find answers for these questions. It’s a radar system conceived to help put your medium to long-term R&D planning on a solid footing, and to identify meaningful action when your are (re-)aligning your research and technology strategy.

 

Future Scenarios

The human’s limited ability to see into the future is not new, but we need to be aware of it, especially when it comes to long-term business decisions. The good news is that there are ways of systematically grappling with how developments happen in markets, industries and society, and thus making yourself “future-proof”.

Higher, faster, further – the latest developments in materials and manufacturing make it possible! New manufacturing technologies are playing a major role in materials, not only in new lightweight construction, graphene and highly porous substances. Driven by ever new requirements and the possibilities of simulation and calculation, materials can be formed more accurately and specifically targeted to your application needs. But the end of life of a material also concerns us. Where are the new, future trends, and who are the best-suited partners for targeted research and development? Just a few of the questions we will be happy to answer for you.



Energy is the central driving force of life! From the generation of energy to its storage and consumption, energy technologies are changing and evolving everywhere. Which way are single sectors and entire branches developing? What forces impact on future development? From sustainable energy generation using future energy-saving options, to minimizing energy consumption from the nanochip to rockets - we are your partner in the search for answers to these questions.
