Successful innovation projects are the result of a complex inter-play of many different actors and activities. A critical - but somewhat neglected - success factor for research and development (R&D) and innovation projects lies in creating the favourable spatial conditions in which employees carry out R&D activities. Research has shown that designing physical environments can encourage processes that play a vital role in product creation, such as knowledge-sharing, learning and collaboration. To shed more light on how R&D workspaces may look like in the near future, the authors have conducted 13 interviews with R&D and innovation managers of leading Swiss and German companies over the course of six months. The results have been transformed into six "R&D workspace scenarios".
