Innovation management focuses on identifying new sales potential by developing innovation ideas for new products, services and business models. In contrast to research and development departments in the classical sense, the focus here is on social trends and new scientific findings that at first glance have nothing directly to do with the company.

Our InnovationLabs - InnoLabs for short - is a platform for the exchange of experience, but also for critically questioning new approaches. The teams cultivate a creative culture here in order to rethink global issues. It's all about freedom, interdisciplinary and networked communication without restrictions on thinking, in order to explore the scope for innovation. In doing so, we are always concerned with the acquisition of sustainable knowledge that can be applied in everyday life.

The Innolab "AgTech/Nutrition", for example, combines the search fields of resource conservation, water efficiency and soil health. While Innolab "Industrial Science" is looking for new business models in the areas of health care and biochemistry.

Since January 2017, our Innolabs have been working, among other things, on concepts to secure the world's food supply - from technologies and processes to digital ideas. This work represents an additional approach to the established plant nutrient products of K+S.

The aim is to actively shape global megatrends and create a new portfolio of products and services.
