If your questions do not fit into a table, we provide individual support with technical and methodological expertise.

Anyone can compare apples with apples. But in order to grasp complex issues, it is often necessary to relate apples to oranges. If your questions do not fit into a table, we support you with comprehensive expertise and methodological skills, which we apply in analyses and studies.

 Unfortunately, there are usually no easy answers to difficult questions. Or the answer would be simple if only the right data were available for all questions. Particularly in rapidly developing topics, we find that there is a lot of data, but the “right” data is often not there. Therefore, we use novel data approaches to complement established statistics and apply sophisticated data fusion and analysis techniques on this basis. We use approximated items to create valid references, even if these do not appear to exist at first glance. This enables us to provide answers to challenging questions. In combination with qualitative methods we create clarity in unclear topics and also offer an outlook on future developments. Of course, you will be involved in important intermediate steps of the processing.

As a result, you can expect more from us than a well-tempered “both and”. We stand for well-founded and pointed results, but we also point out the limits of our knowledge. Our know-how in conducting analyses and studies on technical and socio-economic topics is comprehensively documented – be it on an international and European, national or even regional level. We would also be happy to support you in preparing evidence-based decisions.

Scientific expertise/ meta-study The history of research on the benefits of digital applications in the field of care is relatively young. There is a lack of systematic research approaches for individual nursing technologies as well as for their context-specific use. It is still unclear which criteria and evaluation procedures are […]

Wirtschaft & Arbeit, Wirtschaftsförderung
