Institute for Strategic and Developmental Analysis

Using innovation & insight

We are a private, non-profit research institute, formed as an expert think-tank unit oriented at academic studies, applied solutions as well as analyzing public policies. We perform researches or give consultations on various challenges affecting society at large (be them social, political, economic or cultural) for private (businesses, individuals, etc.) and public sectors (NGOs, governmental institutions, etc.). As a learning organization, we often employ students and help them in their academic or research careers.
