Research & Consultancy

We work at the interface between research and consultancy on the naturaland social sciences and technical, legal and economic matters. Robust scientific findings and recommendations form the keystone of our work. We use our outstanding expertise and interdisciplinary cooperation to craft our own methodologies and analytical tools. We expand on findings from the world of academic science and translate these into practice. We thus foster carefully considered action among policymakers, industry leaders and members of civil society.
