Research at ISOE is characterized by a transdisciplinary approach, by social ecology and an actor-orientated gender & environment research. Our scientific researchers are qualified to apply a great variety of methods within empirical social research, impact assessment, modelling, the preparation of prognoses, and the development of scenarios. We draft communication strategies for an actor-orientated transfer of project results and monitor implementation projects. We have significant expertise and experience for evaluating implementation measures and programmes as well as conducting stakeholder dialogues.
