In order to meet the high requirements of the scientific field, the work of G&K is based on using suitable methods. Method development is therefore an independent field of activity within G&K, as project work always reveals starting points for new methods. We pursue these – together with partners from the sciences. Corresponding services from G&K in-clude in particular:
- Methods for innovation assessment and innovation ability
- Prioritisation methods such as research portfolio approaches
- Indicators to measure transfer and innovation success
G&K projects are designed such that the project results are also used and so themselves create an “impact”. All projects for method development, in which G&K have thus far participated, lead to the methods being used in the commissioning institutions (e.g. “Enabling Innovation”).
