Every StartUp needs support and advice in the early stages of business. As such, we were lucky to have not only Heidelberg StartUp Partners but also the University of Heidelberg and their Exist-Fellowship on our side when we made our first steps as CONIAS Risk Intelligence.

In the past two decades, the Institute for Political Science of the University of Heidelberg has been the "breeding ground" of CONIAS Risk Intelligence. In the course of many research and consulting projects, it was here where the methodological and analytical foundation of our solutions had been developed.

Since 1991, the Heidelberg Institute for International Conflict Research (HIIK), a non-profit, and interdisciplinary organization, conducts independent research on the emergence, dynamics, and settlement of political conflicts worldwide, currently working with more than 200 volunteer researchers.
