We advise and support political institutions as well as public and private organizations on a national, regional and community-based level.

Focal points of our work are the management as well as development of work models and approaches to address societal change in constructive manner. Based on our competences and expertise we conduct application oriented studies, analyses and develop strategies, concepts and practical solutions.

Our work areas include a vast variety of topics and often focus on sensitive issues, such as integration, radicalization, diversity, education, inclusion and other related issues (as listed below).
