Time to Innovate

In most research projects time for innovation is short.
Novel research can only happen after months of data discovery, data collection, integration, and quality assurance. In data-intensive research, scientists can spend up to 80% of their time on data management tasks alone. We can change that.

About Us

A Better Way to Research

wetransform typically gets involved during the proposal phase of a research project in one of two ways:

  • As a subcontractor, if our standard process and tools closely matches the requirements
  • As a partner, if substantial tool customisation or other R&D work is required

During the project, we continually improve data management. Functioning similarly to a Scrum Master in software development, we resolve roadblocks and improve efficiency wherever possible.

This allows the research team to:

1
1
Acquire data from project partners and make it accessible to all researchers

From day one, all project partners use the data set manager to upload data. This enables the researchers to find relevant data swiftly. We support versioning and branching, which makes it easy to stay up-to-date.

2
Design a shared, conceptual model

From day one, all project partners use the data set manager to upload data. This enables the researchers to find relevant data swiftly. We support versioning and branching, which makes it easy to stay up-to-date.

Deal with many different formats and data models

From day one, all project partners use the data set manager to upload data. This enables the researchers to find relevant data swiftly. We support versioning and branching, which makes it easy to stay up-to-date.

Integrate and harmonise multiple data sets into one

From day one, all project partners use the data set manager to upload data. This enables the researchers to find relevant data swiftly. We support versioning and branching, which makes it easy to stay up-to-date.

Understand data quality and coverage

From day one, all project partners use the data set manager to upload data. This enables the researchers to find relevant data swiftly. We support versioning and branching, which makes it easy to stay up-to-date.

Provide data to new applications and existing tools

From day one, all project partners use the data set manager to upload data. This enables the researchers to find relevant data swiftly. We support versioning and branching, which makes it easy to stay up-to-date.

    [HALE is...] The product of a FP7 project where more was achieved than lengthy, silly “deliverable” documents which no one ... really no one ... not even the Project Officer, nor the boss of the Project Officer, nor the boss of the boss of the project officer is interested in reading.
