con gressa was founded in 2001 as an agency for science communication and event planning. We specialize in strategic communication, event management and conference organization. Our clients are research organizations, universities as well as public institutions and foundations. All three directors feel strongly connected to science, having spent an important time of their careers in academia. What makes con gressa unique is that all employees share basic knowledge of how science works and how academic institutions function. This helps us understand our clients and it creates a strong identification with our projects.
At con gressa we work to stay current with the most recent event formats, communication tools and overall trends in science communication. We actively share knowledge within the agency and regularly participate in science communication-related training, conferences and seminars.
Our core team currently consists of 22 employees. In addition, we regularly work with several skilled freelancers to help with large scale jobs or specialized assignments.
We work transparently and cooperatively.
At con gressa budgeting is transparent and there are no hidden fees. Our clients can follow the progress of their projects in real time via collaborative online tools. We like to work as a team with our clients. We see ourselves as partners jointly working towards achieving the best possible project outcome. In all of our work we strive for respectful and honest relationships in order to cultivate sustainable collaborations.
We work sustainably and with an eye on resource-saving.
At con gressa we care about the environment in our daily work as well as in our projects. We are committed to a sustainable use of materials (see also “Guidelines for the sustainable organisation of events“, ed. BMU and UBA). For us, sustainability starts with making the right choices on what projects and activities to pursue in order to achieve effective and sustainable project outcomes with desirable impacts lasting much longer than the day of the event.
We work creatively and efficiently.
We bring fresh ideas, even to recurring events that we organize. We are always looking for the right approach for what you aim to achieve. We are not afraid of unconventional ideas and always seek effective solutions tailored to your project. That is what our “UmdenkLabor” stands for.
For many years, con gressa has supported the “Netzwerk Schülerhilfe Rollberg”, a mentoring program by MORUS 14, with regular donations. In the project, volunteers help children with their homework and their daily struggles. More about the initiative: https://www.morus14.de/netzwerk-schuelerhilfe-rollberg
