Communication and Technology Research

Empirica Communication & Technology Research based in Bonn, Germany, is a private research consultancy specialising in innovation processes and the management of large-scale European projects for both private and public clients. We have established ourselves as a leading European and global institute with a broad understanding of the political, strategic, clinical, business, and socio-economic questions raised by health system change and eHealth tools.

We provided services to the European Parliament, European Commission, WHO, OECD, European Space Agency, national and regional governments, healthcare providers, and global eHealth industrial players. This is complemented by our global experience in applying advanced, but pragmatic cost-benefit assessment methods to health system related delivery processes and outcomes. We are thus able to develop and validate future-proof policies, sustained strategies, business cases, and exploitation scenarios for eHealth supported healthcare delivery.
Our tasks
