    Fraunhofer CeRRI is seeking to reorient innovation toward people, to anticipate prospective socio-technological developments, and to identify promising research trajectories, we re-envision team compositions and utilize the potential of (gender) diversity. We expand the term stakeholder to include all groups and individuals who can affect or be affected by research and development – such as decision-makers from scientific, political, and commercial organizations and, in a broader sense, the public. We develop original interaction and preference articulation formats and utilize our vast expertise in the social and natural sciences, economics, design, communication studies, and computer science. With this focus, Fraunhofer CeRRI can draw on a wide range of theoretical and conceptual knowledge as well as a long term experience in the realization of research projects that focus on public engagement, stakeholder integration and the utilization of diversity in innovation and technology transfer processes. Fraunhofer is Europe’s largest application-oriented research organization. Our research efforts are geared entirely to people’s needs: health, security, communication, energy and the environment. As a result, the work undertaken by our researchers and developers has a significant impact on people’s lives. There are more than 80 research units, including 60 Fraunhofer Institutes, at different locations in Germany. The participating project unit Fraunhofer Center for Responsible Research and Innovation (CeRRI) is located at the Fraunhofer IAO. The basis for all work undertaken at the Fraunhofer IAO is a deep conviction that business success in a globalised arena is contingent on an ability to profitably leverage new high-tech potentials. In order to optimally exploit these opportunities, companies must be capable of developing and implementing customer and employee-oriented technologies faster than their competitors. Work organisation concepts must be simultaneously innovative and anthropocentric. A systematic design, in other words, is the outcome of pooled management and technical expertise. This holistic perspective when it comes to project processing ensures that equal consideration is given to commercial success, employees\' interests and social consequences.
