In close collaboration with all parties involved, our experts develop custom-made solutions through participation, inter- and transdisciplinarity, and a practical, process-driven approach. The inclusion of different perspectives, as well as bringing together expert knowledge and the population’s own first-hand experience, are of fundamental importance. This allows us to set goals together and develop suitable measures to achieve them.
