All main social challenges (energy, mobility, production, health etc.) need appropriate solution strategies, which often require an integration of methods and knowledge from different entities. One important condition of scientific innovation capability is based on the possibility to connect existing knowledge with new knowledge. A central aspect for this connection is a broad exchange between great research associations. Complex and highly specific knowledge as well as a high employee turnover require a systematic analysis and the storage of knowledge. The collected knowledge of an organization exists in the memory of its employees. The central issue of cross-divisional processes in knowledge-intensive organizations is to save and utilize the collected knowledge for all actors. The research of these organisations highly contributes to manage knowledge strategically and thus supports the innovation capability.
