We have extensive experience in economic research and political consultancy. Our research is based on a great number of analyses of short and long term economic transition processes and its labour market implications. Policy advice is based on comprehensive evaluation of political measures and programmes and on international comparisons.

The main issues from the past few years include:

  • Evaluation of active labour market policies on behalf of the European Commission, OECD, ILO, Inter-American Development Bank and other internal organisations
  • Long-term forecasts of labour markets and in-depth scenarios for specific sectors on behalf of the Federal Ministry for Labour and Social Affairs and the European Commission
  • Policy advice to governments in Germany and other countries in the area of labour market, educational and social policies
  • Implementation of representative company surveys on labour demand and job vacancies for the German Federal Employment Agency.

Our research reports are based on validated empirical data and the newest methods, and our reports are clearly structured and well written.
