KNOWLEDGE AND INFORMATION GENERATION FROM DATA - since 2001 CRITERION supports public authorities, industry and institutes on solutions of komplex data analysis for information and knowledge generatiojn. According to a long standing experience in interdisciplinary environmental sciences CRITERION's activities cover the domains like ecology, ecotoxicology and environmental chemistry and can be assigned to risk assessment.

In addition to multivariate statistics and the derivation and application of systems of equations for environmental modelling, the methodical range of CRITERION is particularly characterized by cutting-edge approaches from discrete mathematics.

Following the philosophy of CRITERION information and knowledge generation covers not only the solution of problems concerning expostion, effect and evaluation - such as migration of chemicals, analysis of micro arrays, prioritisation of chemicals or comparative evaluation of environmental compartments - but also methods illuminating the pros and cons of decision processes in environmental management.
