Working with researchers as a technical and commercial partner
Since 2013 we have been working with world-leading UK universities and NHS organisations in grant-funded research projects. This includes projects funded by NIHR, MRC, SBRI Healthcare and other bodies. We bring our skills in co-design; discovery; UX design; full-stack development and commercialisation. We have lead grants as primary investigators, worked as co-investigators and been commissioned as technical contractors. We have considerable experience in bid writing; project planning and bringing research to commercialisation including through regulatory pathways.

Involving children and people with disabilities in research
We developed an app for The South East of Scotland Transport Partnership (SEStran) to make journey planning easier for people with communication disabilities. The app uses symbols to reduce the cognitive load required. It has been tested with different groups of stroke survivors and their families to make sure its functionalities answer their needs.
Working with NGOs to solve real-world problems
We have collaborated with UNICEF to provide accessible and accurate information about menstrual health to young girls in Mongolia and Indonesia.
We have worked with the United Nations Development Programme in Bosnia to build software to track risks including flood and landslide, and with UNDP in Croatia to create an app to encourage usage of the national parks.
