The Compram methodology is acknowledged by many other researchers and policymakers in almost all parts of the world, such as in

 South-America, North-America, Canada, (Taylor, 2013), Europe, Slovak Republic (Hain, 2012; Hain and
Kráľová, 2013), Ukraine

(Koshlai and Mikhalevich, 2007), Romania (Bulz, 2013)   and Austria (Allaraj and Lind-Braucher, 2013), Asia, Turkey[1], India,

 Indonesia, China and Japan to mention a few.
Often only some elements are used, sometimes large parts of the methodology or the whole


The International Research Society of Societal Complexity based on the use of the Compram methodology has departments all over the world.
