We see ourselves as practitioners who work with scientific methods. As such, we have conducted countless impact studies ourselves and many more our clients. As a result, we have first-hand knowledge of the problems encountered in conducting impact studies on a day-to-day basis. Little information – especially when the project is at its very beginning – and even less time are among the biggest challenges. And yet, persuasion for the project has to be done and public relations work has to be carried out. And that is exactly what we have developed our models for. And if you have more time, more information and more resources at your disposal, we also have a wide range of options for you – probably even more than you will ever need.

Your goal

You want to demonstrate the economic and social benefits of your activities. You want to demonstrate the benefits for the labour market and thus for labour income and value added or for the public budget. You want to demonstrate that your economic impact goes far beyond your immediate economic footprint. Your aim is to support your case with hard numbers.

Our offer

From practitioner to academic. From 1-click analysis to in-depth studies. We offer web-based access to our input-output models. Designed for your economy – accessible in your language.

In this way, you can demonstrate what contribution you make to value added, the labour market and income. At national and local level. You can quantify the tax and levy revenues that would not exist without you. Or show the positive effects of turning the energy mix green.

From local investments and CSR to economic development programmes and entire stimulus packages. Back up your arguments with hard facts.

Our Clients

Our offer is aimed at public, private and non-profit companies and institutions, such as national and regional governments, investment promotion agencies, development banks, large companies and interest groups that want to demonstrate and communicate their economic and social footprint on a regular basis.

What you get

Results separated by sector, year and region. NUTS region selectable. Impact on GDP and GRP are shown separately. Further insights with add-ons.


Labour market

Results separated by sector, year and region. NUTS region selectable. Further insights with add-ons.



Results separated by sector, year and region. NUTS region selectable. Further insights with add-ons.


Taxes and duties

Differentiated by type of taxes and levies. Further insights with add-ons.

Our models are based on both the global IO tables (WIOT) and the national IO tables. This allows us to model both the respective national economy and the international import and export flows in detail. Regional and sectoral.

The induced effects are estimated econometrically on the basis of national statistics.

In combination with CHARM to adjust for cross-hauling, our models can thus show you the full scope of your economic activity.

The total impact of an economic activity is the sum of the direct, indirect and induced effects.

The direct effects occur where demand first increases.

Indirect effects occur within the supply chain that are indirectly caused by the direct impact.

Induced effects occur because (i) companies reinvest part of their directly and indirectly profits generated and (ii) consumers re-spend part of their directly and indirectly generated income for consumption purposes.

Define your primary region, i.e. the region where the direct effect starts. Select your region at different NUTS levels or compile your primary region from several NUTS levels. Also across different NUTS levels and across country borders.

Define spillover regions – as many as you want. Spillover regions are regions that are linked to the primary region through trade relations and are thus also affected – directly or indirectly – by the direct effects in the primary region. For example, if the primary region imports goods or has workers commute in from neighbouring regions.

With additional modules, the main effects on value added, employment and income can be further differentiated and additional effects quantified.

Main effects such as income and employment by highest formal education, gender, full-time and part-time employment, employment effect in full-time equivalents compared to employment effect in heads and type of employment. In addition, value added effect and operating surpluses by company size as well as induced investments.

Additional effects such as greenhouse gas effect (further differentiated by 6 greenhouse gases) in CO2 equivalents, particulate matter (PM2.5 and PM10), ozone precursors (5 gases), acidifying air pollutants (4 gases), energy use differentiated by more than 20 energy sources, process emissions and much more ...

And if you have special requirements, we can develop additional modules especially for you.
