Innovation has shaped modern society from the very beginning. Now, however, its nature is changing, and innovation itself is becoming an aim and purpose of social activity. This is where RTG 1672, "Innovationsgesellschaft heute: Die reflexive Herstellung des Neuen" ["Today's Innovation Society: The Reflexive Production of the New"] comes in. This Research Training Group will expand the economic concept of innovation to include social scientific aspects, as well as examining social innovation. The team will study practices and processes in science and technology, industry and service, and art and culture, as well as political regulation and spatio-social planning.

RTG 1759 aims to bridge the gap between science and art in an innovative manner. This Research Training Group is based at the Berlin University of the Arts, an institution where the various arts are not just taught and explored, but also practiced. As its name indicates, the RTG "Wissen der Knste" ["Knowledge in the Arts"] will examine knowledge in the arts as an implicit, habitualised, incorporated and process-oriented form of knowledge. Through the interplay of art history and cultural studies, media studies and the philosophical, pedagogical and engineering scientific disciplines, the Research Training Group will examine ways in which artistic knowledge develops, as well as how it expresses and legitimises itself.
