Lebendiges Element des Technologietransfermodells des Außeninstituts ist die aktive Beteiligung an Projekten. Typischerweise bringt das Außeninstitut seine Kompetenz in kooperative Netzwerkprojekte ein, in denen der Austausch zwischen Unternehmen, Forschungsinstituten und Universität vorrangig ist. Die inhaltliche Ausrichtung der Projekte ist allerdings sehr breit. Untenstehend sehen Sie einen Auszug anProjekten des Außeninstituts.




Das aus EU-Mitteln geförderten Projekt „IAMRRI“, das seit Mai 2018 umgesetzt wird, widmet sich der Verbindung von Innovationforschung, mit der Technologie der additiven Fertigung unter Einbeziehung von Forschung und Innovation auf die Bedarfe der Gesellschaft.

The  I AM RRI project is in relation to additve manufacturing. That is because the project will investigate the emerging, complex and highly dynamic AM innovationwebs of innovation value chains (WIVC) under the consideration of the openings of RRI. This novel WIVC are characterised by production technology entirely different to the traditional production and value chains. Such a complex system can only described by numerical modelling. Form that it can be learned what are the most important influencing factors on such a complex and dynamic system. Innovation general influences our daily life and lead to continuous change process in society. Dynamic WIVC have impact on the society, because they are drivers for further development. The influence of  RRI dimensions, gender equality, open access, ethics, public engagement, science eductation will be simulated with the developed model. The creation of a new knowledge base about processes and practices in the complex webs of innovation chains on the examples of AM is one main goal. This should include the understanding of interaction of different stakeholders and community of practice (CoP) by indicator and factors, characterising the behaviour of agents in the WIVC when introducing RRI principles.The conceptual model will predict the success of AM innovations in terms of technology, societal and market acceptance at different levels of WIVC. An appropriate classification of social readiness with respect to AM shall be given. Performing an anticipative foresight process will guarantee the involvement of stakeholders representing the entire quadruple helix including researchers, citizens, policy makers, businesses, and third sectors (e.g., standardization bodies, insurance companies, NGOs, etc.). The foresight process shall result among other things in different scenarios and strategies for the AM future.

The generation of a dynamic numerical model of webs of innovation value chains taking into account open innovation and stage-gate approaches builds also main objective. The model shall be tested, validated and refined with the modelling language used for describing complex systems (multi-agent based modelling) so that the behaviour of webs of innovation system value chains in AM under different conditions can be simulated and visualized, as well as a general understanding of the potential RRI openings can be generated. For validating the model and for improving it, typical use cases of AM like medical and automotive application will be study for testing the developed agent based model. Results of conceptual and numerical simulation will lead to strategic guidelines for implementation of RRI principles for institutional change.
