Team

Based on the specific needs of every client and our diverse professional network, we form project-based teams for any bigger assignment.

A recent example:

  • we consulted a nation-wide program for young people that combines football training and life skills sessions;
  • our team included a researcher with more than 10 years of experience in football, and another with degrees from University of Oxford and University of Tübingen, respectively in Experimental Psychology and Neural and Behavioural Sciences.

Get in touch and we will form a team according to your needs.
