“Interim Results about Demographic Change in Research & Development – Challenges for Organisational Creativity“: New article published

Published: 05/18/15

Research and development (R&D) are key concepts for the promotion and organization of creativity and innovation processes. An article published in the anthology “Exploring Demografics” explores/analyses the impacts of the demographic change on technology-oriented businesses in R&D.

On the basis of data material coming from KreaRe, a descriptive assessment of the results is made: which age structures can be found in R&D staff today? How do R&D executives evaluate the topic of availability of skilled workforces? How can creative performance be preserved “until retirement”? Which connecting factors exist for the corporate practice?
