Yesterday, the DKKV office, represented by Benni Thiebes and Ronja Winkhardt-Enz, visited the Institute for Qualifying Innovation Research and Consulting GmbH (IQIB) in Bad Neuenahr-Ahrweiler. The institute is a subsidiary of the DKKV member German Aerospace Center (DLR) and conducts research in the fields of innovation dynamics, technology assessment and systems analysis. It supports clients from politics, business and society in analyzing formative trends at an early stage and provides tailor-made concepts for action. In addition, the IQIB uses the results of its scientific work as a basis for individual consulting and training concepts and develops complex scenarios and strategies for the future in the InnovationLab, which Ronja and Benni were able to get to know.

Many thanks to Roman Noetzel, Wigand Fleischer, Bert Droste-Franke and Dr. Felix Schubert for the great opportunity to get to know each other and the exciting exchange on topics such as disaster preparedness, risk, foresight, flood disaster and resilience.

We look forward to joint activities for more resilience in our society.
