ISIS is a private social science research, training and consultancy institute, founded in 1991 and based in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. Its research focuses on issues of population groups threatened or concerned by disadvantages, such as older persons, migrants, people with disability or the unemployed. The improvement of their living conditions, equal opportunities and participation in society are a primary topic in work of ISIS, including situation analysis, problem identification as well as the development and testing of solutions.
ISIS is experienced in conceptualising and carrying out projects for regional and national institutions and is active throughout Europe. It coordinates partnerships and initiatives aiming at a productive synthesis of the expertise of our project partners from various sectors and functions, such as policy-makers and practitioners, public authorities and NGOs or experts and target group representatives. The bridging of gaps between different sectors in sciences and policies e.g. the social, health and educational realms has also been successfully achieved in a number of ISIS projects.
