PPMI is a leading European research and policy analysis centre. We help public sector and civil society leaders from around the world, presenting evidence in a way that is simple, clear and ready to use. We are a trusted partner, providing actionable insights, developing shared understanding among key stakeholders, and enabling policy implementation to bring about positive and lasting change.
PPMI goes the extra mile, consistently delivering work of the highest quality. All our methodologies and approaches represent the state of the art. We are experts in implementing complex field research, ranging from hundreds of interviews over several months, to international surveys with tens of thousands of respondents. We employ a wide variety of methods for data mining and analysis, driving evidence with data-based insights. All of this is made possible by our in-house team of dedicated researchers from a range of disciplines (from political science, economics, sociology, philosophy to mathematics, computer science and physics) and countries, and with diverse backgrounds in academia, business and public service.
In our assignments, we collaborate with the best peers, including leading public research institutes, prominent universities, market and data analysis companies, and software developers. Acting as a bridge between these partners and our clients, we employ the latest knowledge and cutting-edge expertise to solve the most complex challenges. By bringing together multiple perspectives from academia, business, the public sector and society at large, PPMI connects ideas and experiences to build a world where policies work.
