Future - Technology Foresight

The heart of our company's innovative strength is in Tokyo. We are researching the future of society and the economy there and translating it into trends that will accompany us in the coming years. The strategic thinking model is presented in the annual Technology Foresight Report.

Co-Creation - "Ensō - The Space for Creators"

The Munich-based "Ensō - The Space for Creators" is the innovation center of the NTT Group in Europe. A creative place for research and innovation, where we can test the future together. On 500 square meters we can work together with customers and partners on ideas and redesign products, processes and technologies.

"Strength", "Enlightenment", "Creation" - this is what Ensō stands for in Japanese calligraphy - for us these are the right associations to our Innovation Lab: people come together to create something new together. In this room we develop new ideas and solutions together with customers and partners. But our employees can also give free rein to their creativity and become inventors.
