We aim to trigger green and social transition and transformation

We consist of dedicated individuals with a diverse background ranging from ecology through economy and policy to geography. We focus on biodiversity and the society, energy, sustainable transition and transformation as well as behaviour change. For this we carry out research, we measure impacts, we provide advice and we do projects. We involve multiple stakeholders, we build dialogues and bridges. We bring experience and networks from both Western and Eastern Europe.


Ecosystem Evaluation

The concept of ecosystem services is relatively new – especially in Central and Eastern Europe -, however we have already had a big chunk of involvement in participating in related processes including the international IPBES (Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services) and the EU’s Mapping and Assessment of Ecosystems and Ecosystem Services (MAES) processes along with several EU (FP7, Horizon 2020, Interreg and LIFE projects) and EU expert groups. In our recent ecosystem evaluation projects, we have paid elevated emphasis on involving local stakeholders as well as experts in the evaluation process through participatory approach in order to get better results.


Energy Services

Our experts have been advocating and carrying out research for sustainable and sufficiency energy use for 15 years. We have analysed the national household energy use of Central and Eastern European countries. We raised the energy sufficiency profiles of international organisations and projects focusing on alleviating energy poverty, evaluated national and international energy related programmes from an energy sufficiency point of view. We developed and disseminated an interactive, awareness raising game towards the needed systematic transformation.


Driving social transition & transformation

Understanding individual and institutional choices and behaviour, will help understand how our society steers for an (un)sustainable future. Carrying out ground-breaking research on climate change, biodiversity and behaviour will fuel driving social transition within sectors and social transformations. Identifying policy entry points at various levels and relevant decision-makers will induce the transformation along with building a network of transformation scientists and practitioners EU-wide focusing on climate and environmental issues.

International Projects Delivered
Years of experience

Why to work with us?

Due to our vast knowledge in UN, EU and national energy, environmental and financial policies, we are here to investigate and disclose the policy hooks and the financial opportunities as well as their recent development in relation to your international project. With a profound understanding of policies and financing as well as their recent trends, you can become an even more agile and highly adaptive player through discovering opportunities you may not have been aware of. We can compile regular briefings in recent and potential policy developments and international financing opportunities for you to follow changes, or we can compose synthesis studies on one or more policy and financing fields.

As certified facilitators and advisors running almost 100 international and national workshops, we can nurture processes from plans to successful completion. With our basic values of candour, respect of opinion and mindful listening, we can make all participants comfortable to share their points openly, which in return help their empowerment and responsibility to carry out the project till the finish.


Good prices

We provide you with flexible prices below the market price. Should you be interested in partnering up with us, please send us a message.


Large network

Due to our cumulative 20 years of international experience we have an extended network of decision-makers, research and businesses at EU and CEE levels.


Specific expert pool

We work with a professional network, who can answer your specific questions, let it be about technical or strategic issues to provide you with a complex service experience.


Knowledge of Central and Eastern Europe

As native Hungarians and experts of the region we are well aware of the challenges of the region – should you need specific work here, we are your right choice.



Our core value is efficiency and effectiveness, which we aim to achieve through time (and money)-saving practices including immediate reactions, thorough preparations and modern project management practices.



We highly depend on our clients, therefore our other core value is to customize tailor-make services to our clients and provide the services our clients truly need and is useful for them.


Science-policy-business interface

As a result of our experience, we have thorough knowledge of all these sectors challenges and needs as well as their main actors. We also aim to tear down the silos and ensure these sectors can reach each other’s information.


Complex scientific and policy services

We know how annoying it is that you are only provided by one piece of information, when you rather would need a complex overview. By providing strategy analysis, project implementation and proposal advice along with financial and policy opportunities, you will get a more thorough picture on both risks and opportunities.


Easy-to-understand outcomes

We would like to make sure you are provided with a thorough analysis, but also with a synthesis that stresses the main messages in an easily understandable way, so you will not need another expert to explain it to you.



More than 15 years of experience in proposal development, project implementation, reporting and impact assessments.
