CIB in a nutshell
The CIB is a method used for the systematic construction of qualitative scenarios and for qualitative network analysis. The CIB evaluates qualitative expert assessments of system interrelationships and calculates the 'consistent scenarios' of system behavior with the help of a balance algorithm.
This website provides information about the workings of the CIB, offers a bibliography that provides an overview of methodological research and fields of application and provides free software for application of the method.
The website is maintained by the CIB-Lab of the Centre for Interdisciplinary Risk and Innovation Studies at the University of Stuttgart.
