Platform Projects

What you need.

You need a service provider to give ongoing strategic advice or support in operational implementation and communication. Rather than commissioning each of these services individually you would prefer to deal with a single provider – reliable and lean in bureaucracy.

What we offer.

Prognos can assume the tasks of platform and integrated projects in various political areas. In this context, we advise and support numerous clients. Our services extend from strategic advice, ad-hoc consulting, programme monitoring, and evaluation, up to network and event management, and public relations. For this purpose, the platform projects have multi-professional teams at their disposal – from data analysts to moderators, as well as technical experts.

We create reports, oversee editorial work for your communication products, and coordinate with agencies.
