In diesem Discussion Paper wird im ersten Teil das Forschungsprogramm der Abteilung Kulturelle Quellen von Neuheit dokumentiert, im zweiten Teil werden insgesamt sechs Projekte und zwei an das Programm gekoppelte Dissertationen vorgestellt. Neuheit, so die zugrundeliegende Annahme des Forschungsprogramms, bildet den Kern von Innovationen und entsteht in mehrfach bestimmten kulturellen Zusammenhängen, die als kulturelle Quellen bezeichnet werden. Die Relevanz dieser kulturellen Faktoren - im Unterschied zu technischen oder politischen Aspekten - ist der Gegenstand der Forschung. Dabei gelten drei Prozesse als entscheidend für die Qualität und Anschlussfähigkeit von Innovationen: 1) die ständige Variation kultureller Selbstverständlichkeiten, 2) Prozesse der Bewertung als Neuheit und 3) Spannungszustände, die in und zwischen Kulturen auftreten. Das Zusammenspiel dieser drei Prozesse, so die These, bestimmt das Spektrum und die Reichweite des Neuen, das sich langfristig durchsetzt. Die empirischen Felder des Forschungsprogramms sind aus der räumlichen, interaktiven und zeitlichen Dimensionierung kultureller Konfigurationen hergeleitet. In jedem der Felder sind zwei Projekte angesiedelt, die Phänomene unterschiedlicher Größenordnung untersuchen.
