De Uilenkamer (or in the English translantion ‘The Owls Room’) is a consultancy that supports communication managers with accountability and research questions. The agency analyzes information problems and helps to find answers. It does not carry out any research itself, but supports design and tendering. If you think about communication research and have questions about why, how and what, it can be valuable to contact us. In an informal conversation we will gladly explain what De Uilenkamer has to offer.


De Uilenkamer Interim is also active in the field of interim management of communication research activities.
