The Competence Center for Social Innovations, Methods and Analyses (KoSIMA) is a cluster of experts from the fields of social sciences, economics, business administration, and computer science at Nuremberg Tech. Together with our partners, we analyse social and economic developments. We combine scientific research and social relevance by transferring our results to the public, political, and corporate spheres.

KoSIMA was founded as an interdisciplinary unit of Nuremberg Tech in spring 2019. Our competences and services cover the following areas:
1) Human resources – labour market, training, and personnel
2) Social change – demography, welfare mix and social cohesion 
3) Empirical methods and analyses

KoSIMA promotes the internal exchange of expertise, coordinates research projects, puts on public events, offers advice on methodical issues (evaluations, (field) experiments, empirical analysis methods, big data), and transfers this knowledge through the development of social, IT-based, and economic innovations.
