Man can move a mountain. Innovation enables us to fly above the crest.
We see innovation not as an end in itself but as a vital tool to answer the key challenges of our time.
Innovationhouse sees itself as a companion to public and private customers in all phases of the innovation process – from brainstorming to implementation. Headquartered in Stuttgart, Innovationhouse mainly operates regionally in Baden-Württemberg, but also has national and European project experience.
We briefly present our most important projects and clients in the References section.

Ute left the team at the end of January. She is now fully focused on her practice of supervision and mindfulness.
Mindfulness training gives you the opportunity to deal with stress and stress-related symptoms such as restlessness, lack of concentration, difficulty sleeping through the night, grinding teeth, physical pain and conflict situations in a more relaxed manner. In consultation with your doctor or therapist, it can be helpful in dealing with various illnesses.
In 8-week courses you will learn the basics and exercises of mindfulness. The courses take place in small groups. Each unit is deepened by practicing at home with CDs and written course material. Part of the training is a so-called mindfulness Saturday. The courses follow a verified curriculum and are certified by the central testing center for prevention.
Almost ten years ago we organized a workshop on “Open Innovation in a Globalised World” for DG Enterprise and Industry. Some of the conclusions still are worth to be kept in mind for further discussions and policy development in support of open innovation. ”An appropriate mix of regional policies, S&T policies and industrial policies is…
Adjusting innovation policy in an era of open innovation
”An appropriate mix of regional policies, S&T policies and industrial policies is needed to support open innovation. This calls for improved coordination of these different policy areas.
Potential policy measures to support open innovation should aim to remove existing barriers for collaboration, to enable the development of open innovation structures and to ensure the creation and diffusion of knowledge flows within the innovation system. Of particular importance are the removal of barriers for co-operation across Europe and the availability of skilled work force with view of open innovation needs.”
Those interested in the results may download the workshop conclusions for further reading.
