Episteme has a long history in the field of social research. We offer research services, both qualitative and quantitative, to improve knowledge of complex social phenomena. The key to the success of our work lies in designs adjusted to the reality to be investigated and to pragmatic and evaluable objectives.
In the social field we only have evaluation as a mechanism to scientifically prove that a programme/project is effective and of high quality. At Episteme we master different evaluation strategies. We carry out diagnostics, needs assessment, process evaluation, design evaluation, outcome evaluation, although our strength lies in impact evaluations.
Continuous training is a necessity in the current social scenario. Challenges and new opportunities are constantly appearing. Episteme researches new social trends. This places us in a privileged position to transfer knowledge through training. Episteme's training courses are formulated and designed ad hoc according to the demand.
In-depth knowledge of the processes of action is the first step to improve the quality of any social intervention. Episteme helps social intervention organisations to improve their work processes. We analyse both external actions and internal dynamics. We also advise on evaluation and research aspects.
Episteme helps entities in those aspects that usually represent a handicap in the organisation and its structure, such as project formulation, evaluation designs and evaluation dynamics, as well as the improvement of all those internal dynamics. In addition, some members are highly qualified to act as international consultants in any case.
Data, analysis and writing
Episteme offers both quantitative and qualitative data generation and/or analysis services. This service can be provided either as part of an ongoing project or as a continuation or continuation of a project started by another organisation. Episteme also writes on demand, from project proposals to final reports in any text format.
