Impulses for the funding topics of tomorrow

We advise and support our clients with scientific expertise in research and innovation programmes on education and equal opportunities. We identify relevant research and funding needs, design funding priorities and contribute our interdisciplinary thematic expertise to the development of funding announcements. In addition, we produce analyses, studies and evaluations in the context of educational and social research. Through events and public relations work, we network relevant actors, contribute to the dissemination of results in science and support their transfer into practice. We are currently implementing various initiatives and programmes of ministries at Federal and State level as well as foundations. Our experience and methodological competence enable us to recognise and evaluate current developments, new trends and future topics at an early stage. With this knowledge, we provide impulses for future funding topics and contribute to more educational and equal opportunities.

We move confidently in all fields of project funding activity on the basis of many years of experience and broad expertise. We implement funding management professionally and in a legally sound manner. We combine a structured and transparent approach with creativity. Our interdisciplinary teams work in tandems of technical and administrative staff, ensuring a holistic view of the projects. We design the right solution for you, whether in municipalities, at State or Federal level, or even internationally.
