The use of innovative technologies will be absolutely critical to the achievement of the sustainable development goals (SDGs). To be able to better identify and analyse the potential and risks, the Deutsche Gesellschaft für internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) joined together with the cooperation partner Envisioning and the Fraunhofer Institute for Industrial Engineering (FIAO) to develop the techDetector. The result is a responsive, web-based interface that provides interactive access to innovative technologies for sustainable development with a huge amount of background information.

The GIZ techDetector

The techDetector offers a strategic and analytical assessment of innovative technologies with a focus on sustainable development. A sustainable technology scouting tool at the application level is a unique selling point in the area of international technology rankings.
