About us

IRS Group is more like a hobby but periodically we do commercial projects specialised in Life Science innovations, health economics, market research and strategy. Actually, we build the bridge between R&D and business helping to find intersection points and the right direction. We give hands-on tools and the guidance you need to make real performance. 


We are committed to the idea that "everything should be made as simple as possible, but no simpler" (A.Einstein).  It means that we don't complicate things but we are warning against too much simplicity and emphasizes that one cannot simplify things to a point where the hypothesis is no more compatible with all observations. That's why we use explicit tools, approaches, models, calculations and theories. 


And, we almost forgot: we are not "Transgalactic Consulting Corporation & Company", we do not generate paperwork and fake off, and we do not provide a massive amount of .pptx slides, meetings, calls and papers. We are dedicated to "20/80 rule" focusing on "20", not "80". It always works better. Really. 


We also perform socially-oriented duties, such as publishing insights on the most challenging social issues. This, in our view, helps us stay connected with the real world to support those in need and share our best practices.
