Exper­tise

iRights.Lab is capa­ble of deal­ing with a mul­ti­tude of the social issues which arise through dig­i­tal­iza­tion thanks to our broad tech­ni­cal exper­tise and inter­na­tion­al net­works. We devel­op com­pre­hen­si­ble, nuanced and above all prac­ti­cal solu­tions.

We are inde­pen­dent and non­par­ti­san. This allows us to under­take analy­ses with­out pre­con­ceived out­comes in mind, and to offer unbi­ased answers. Above all, our mis­sion is always to serve the pub­lic inter­est. That applies in par­tic­u­lar to com­pli­cat­ed, con­tro­ver­sial or emerg­ing sub­ject areas.

These are the main ser­vices we pro­vide:

Polit­i­cal con­sul­tan­cy
Analy­ses of cur­rent polit­i­cal issues are a core ele­ment of our work, as is strate­gic plan­ning for and with insti­tu­tions, author­i­ties, rep­re­sen­ta­tives and inter­est groups in mat­ters relat­ing to dig­i­tal pol­i­tics. To that end, we also cre­ate com­pre­hen­sive con­cepts for ori­ent­ing insti­tu­tions towards dig­i­tal themes and activ­i­ties.
Cre­at­ing stud­ies, analy­ses and reports
We are con­stant­ly keep­ing an eye on the excit­ing and rel­e­vant devel­op­ments in dig­i­tal­iza­tion. That allows us to thor­ough­ly inves­ti­gate almost every topic in the con­text of dig­i­tal­iza­tion from many dif­fer­ent angles, in order to give well-ground­ed answers to your ques­tions. We are par­tic­u­lar­ly inter­est­ed in cur­rent and unsolved prob­lems, and offer pos­si­ble answers for these.
Applied research and accom­pa­ny­ing research
One of our strengths lies in well-ground­ed inves­ti­ga­tions into dig­i­tal issues. We cover all the steps of an inves­ti­ga­tion, from con­cep­tion to exe­cu­tion, and from pub­li­ca­tion to fol­low-up.
Brief­in­gs and back­ground expe­ri­ence
Thanks to our inter­dis­ci­pli­nary approach, we have expe­ri­ence in the most diverse range of fields of dig­i­tal­iza­tion. This allows us to give other organ­i­sa­tions as well as indi­vid­u­als access to the knowl­edge they need regard­ing spe­cif­ic topic areas, and to sup­port them with reg­u­lar brief­in­gs.
Con­cep­tion and exe­cu­tion of events
Whether a meet­ing, con­fer­ence or panel, we take care of events from the first plans to fol­low-up. We can draw on our exten­sive expe­ri­ence to help.
Con­ceiv­ing train­ings and inter­nal reor­gan­i­sa­tions
We assist organ­i­sa­tions and insti­tu­tions through re-struc­tures and train­ing pro­grammes with advice and prac­ti­cal assis­tance. We sup­port process­es of change towards a pos­i­tive out­come of the dig­i­tal tran­si­tion.
Dia­logue and multi-stake­hold­er process­es
We bring dif­fer­ent inter­est groups to the table to cre­ate a com­fort­able atmos­phere of dis­cus­sion so that we can cre­ate solu­tions which work for every­one. Fur­ther­more, we devel­op ways of orga­niz­ing engag­ing dia­logues with groups in soci­ety who are less dig­i­tal­ly-capa­ble, or who are dif­fi­cult to reach for other rea­sons.
Pub­li­ca­tions and infor­ma­tion offers
We cre­ate infor­ma­tive and clear pub­li­ca­tions that deal with ques­tions posed by the dig­i­tal world, as well as over­all trends, devel­op­ments and rela­tion­ships, whether in the form of a longer pub­li­ca­tion, an infor­ma­tion leaflet or a con­cise posi­tion paper.
Strate­gic process plan­ning and imple­men­ta­tion
We are expe­ri­enced helpers when it comes to changes and reforms of organ­i­sa­tions, and we can bring inno­v­a­tive meth­ods to bear on these process­es. For exam­ple, we design the right sce­nar­ios and nar­ra­tives to express com­plex ideas and give audi­ences clear expla­na­tions of process­es of change. We also help to avoid com­mon pit­falls and to plan for suc­cess from the begin­ning.
Pre­sen­ta­tions, lec­tures, keynote speech­es and pan­elists
We are happy to take to the speaker’s desk, to answer ques­tions about dig­i­tal­iza­tion, to give par­tic­i­pants an engag­ing intro­duc­tion to a par­tic­u­lar topic, or to take part in a joint dis­cus­sion on a given issue. We offer talks and mod­er­a­tions for begin­ners and experts alike, and we cover a broad spec­trum of themes.
Inter­na­tion­al net­work­ing
In the dig­i­tal world, suc­cess only comes to those who work inter­na­tion­al­ly and who think out­side the box. That’s why we work close­ly with our part­ners around the world and pass on their exper­tise or direct­ly con­nect you with the right per­sons.
Press infor­ma­tion
We are always avail­able to give clear answers to requests from the press about nation­al and inter­na­tion­al devel­op­ments in dig­i­tal­iza­tion.
