R&D Workspace 2015+

Designing Spatial Solutions for Future R&D

Successful innovation projects are the result of a complex interplay of many different actors and activities. We have found that a critical - but somewhat neglected - success factor for R&D and innovation lies in creating the favorable spatial conditions in which employees carry out R&D activities. Designing work places, rooms and buildings deliberately for innovation purposes can be just as beneficial as defining innovation processes or using sophisticated IT tools. The existing body of knowledge concerning the design of R&D spaces, however, is rather limited. This is why Fraunhofer IAO has initiated the »Advanced Workshop on R&D Work Spaces 2015+« in collaboration with the R&D Management Conference. To gain more insight into the successful design of R&D space, participants had the opportunity to understand basic concepts of R&D space design, to learn from good practice examples and to collaboratively explore new ways to shape future R&D environments. This brochure gives an overview on the workshop presentations as well as the Fraunhofer internal research project »R&D workspaces 2015+«.
