Merience is an independent strategic consultancy specialised in communication and stakeholder engagement in complex environmental decision-making processes.

Since 2010, we undertake research and provide technical assistance to design, manage and tailor stakeholder engagement strategies, risk and science communication programmes and projects on socio-technical challenges, such as energy production, climate change, environmental remediation, decommissioning, radioactive waste management, etc. In addition, we organise and deliver seminars and training courses on stakeholder involvement and risk and crisis communication throughout different environmental sectors and all over the world.
