Our team collaborates across social science and technology, to bring insights from each to capture the benefits of data-driven innovation. We create knowledge and tools that empower our clients to transform research into innovation and innovation into impact.
Trilateral’s data governance services support organisations to navigate the latest regulations with confidence to maintain their high reputational standards and preserve trustworthy relationships with their clients and partners
Impact assessments provide an opportunity for organisations to explore, assess, analyse and potentially mitigate a wide range of risks in relation to new information and data systems. Our staff are GDPR certified and have a deep understanding of GDPR compliance. We do not follow a ‘one size fits all’ approach, rather we tailor our solutions according to the needs of the client. Our assessments include: Privacy Impact Assessment, Data Protection Impact Assessment, Ethical Impact Assessment and Socio-Economic Impact Assessment.
We use a range of tools to provide privacy-by-design support services for clients looking to ensure compliance with the GDPR or responsible innovation principles. We asses user requirements, design specifications and deployment plans to embed privacy protections into new or existing systems. We work directly with technology developers and end users in agile development methodologies, providing privacy and data protection advice at every step. The result is a technology that is legally compliant and socially acceptable to users, allowing our clients to lead the way in privacy-protective innovations.
The appropriate uptake of new and emerging technologies is essential for achieving impact. We assess existing and emerging technologies, taking the position that technology alone cannot be relied upon to deliver a service. We support our clients in all stages of the technology development and uptake process, including: domain mapping, gap analysis, market impact assessment, identifying user requirements and establishing scenarios for development, benchmarking and performance assessment, user experience and social acceptability. Our assessments facilitate responsible research and innovation, ensuring that technology design, implementation and use is conducted to optimise the use of technologies.
We provide a range of applied research and evaluation. Our portfolio includes multidisciplinary expertise in social and political science, law and human rights, technology studies, economics, computer science and engineering. Our approach combines technological innovation with a social perspective. We provide historical insights as well as looking towards the future and potential trends. We are experienced in providing primary and secondary research expertise, including qualitative and quantitative research methodologies. In supporting research and innovation activities, we offer bespoke support in conducting and enhancing ethical research practices.
Our clients operate within a complex policy and regulatory framework. We assist private and public sector clients to monitor, interpret and comply with the political and regulatory environments in which they operate, and thereby shape their operations accordingly. We also support clients by conducting impact analyses across all affected stakeholders to develop new institutional or government policies, regulations and standards, and identify best practices and knowledge transfer under existing regulatory regimes.
Bringing a product to the market requires a set of complementary services in innovation management. First, potential clients need to know that a product exists. Second, enterprises need a business model to make their product attractive to users and enable them to effectively commercialise their product. Our expert team provides digital marketing services for security, ICT, smart cities and green technologies. We also create and implement business models for new technologies developed in the private and public sectors. Combined, these allow our clients to transform innovation into impact for their products and their businesses.
