What you need.

Insights and a basis for decision-making for yourself or your stakeholders. Methodically sound in the form of reliable figures or as a high-quality qualitative evaluation.

An independent analysis of economic and political developments, a well-founded forecast or the diagnosis of an acute problem –tailor-made for your subject area and your question.


What we offer.

Reliable, independent analyses as a basis for your decisions. We deliver politically independent and convincing arguments. Our clients form their own opinions – whether trade unions, employers, environmental organisations or energy companies.

Powerful models and solid methods. Our approach is solution-oriented, fact-based and interdisciplinary. Our experts from various disciplines work on your issue with proven qualitative methods and reliable quantitative models. We present our assumptions and methods transparently – this makes our analyses "discussion-proof" and comprehensible.


Analyses: A selection of our services

Model-driven analyses

We find answers to questions about overall systems and long-term developments. Whether economic, social, energy or transport issues: Prognos' models and tools can be combined to suit your specific questions and thus provide you with interdisciplinary and integrated insights into a topic.

Trend reports

We use qualitative and quantitative forecasts and scenarios to identify and analyse economic, social and regional trends.

Market & regional analyses

We analyse frameworks, potentials and significances of markets by looking at the entire competitive environment, entire regions and/or individual players. With our models we map complex interactions, including international trade flows and interdependencies.

Impact analyses & impact assessments

Political and business management decisions often have far-reaching consequences. We identify, quantify and analyse short and long-term effects of instruments, reforms and measures and relate them to the overall context – across policy fields and sectors.

Bases for decision-making

Is a project feasible – and is it profitable? Under what conditions does a measure achieve the desired effects? With well-founded quantitative and econometric analyses and expert reports we create solid foundations for good decisions.


We evaluate organisational structures, political instruments as well as the effectiveness and targeting of funding programmes to make successes measurable and potentials visible.
