Do you have a (research) question in mind? Are you planning to conduct a study? Are you in need of our expertise?
The IfM Bonn will be happy to assist and to co-operate with you. Our service starts with the development of a research concept, continues with the (empirical) analysis and the writing of a report and ends with the public dissemination of the results. In every project phase, we co-ordinate work with you to achieve tailored results.
The research activities of the IfM Bonn include a wide range of different topics related to Mittelstand and SMEs. Our researchers have outstanding expertise in the fields of entrepreneurship, employment in SMEs, digitisation and family business. The institute's strength lies in the interdisciplinary composition of our team of researchers, which includes economists, business economists, psychologists, sociologists and mathematicians. We adopt qualitative as well as quantitative methods - often in combination (mixed-methods design).
We are looking forward to working with you. For further information, please contact schroeder(at)ifm-bonn.org.
