Research & analysis
Research and policy advice play a central role in the services we offer as a research-based consulting agency. IDEA research is both quantitatively and qualitatively substantiated. Our advice is solutions-oriented and aimed at creating added value for clients.
The result is that IDEA's research and advice stands out from that of others due to:
- Its societal relevance: Our research tackles the big challenges of the future such as the innovation capacity of the European economy, demographic changes, climate change, sustainable rural and urban development;
- The use of strong and proven scientific methodologies from research into literature, quantitative analysis, surveys of in-depth interviews, workshops and focus groups in order to obtain a good understanding of what works (and what doesn't), how it works, why and under which conditions.
- Its interactive approach. We draw on the insights of a broad group of players in order to guarantee a lack of bias in the process and the completeness and the accuracy of the conclusion.
