Our application-focused and practical studies, analyses and cases for companies deliver the knowledge base and operative solutions required to safeguard locations and employment.

Studies and Reports

Industry analyses and market studies are an important foundation to develop and realise sustainable concepts as well as innovative ideas, and are an elementary part of decision-making within companies, business associations and public sector bodies. Our work is fundamentally based on well-founded industry expertise from our business consulting experiences and knowledge about regional economic issues.

Labour market policies

Sustainable labour market policies play an ever-increasing role in our modern economies. Safeguarding of employment and creation of new jobs are the foremost questions in this areas.

Industry-specific concepts

Consulting about various potentials, case development and implementation of the resulting concepts can open new paths that are practical solutions to problems in various labour market policy areas.

Structural change

The changing economic environment and demographic challenges of the 21st century require politicians and business alike to react.

Regional development

Regional economic analyses and development concepts are an important foundation for the formulation of strategy recommendations for local and regional political actors.
