More than 1100 research projects at 500+ universities and other research organizations have been completed or are underway worldwide, including 280+ peer-reviewed publications, conference papers, undergraduate and post-graduate degrees and other student projects.

Research using 1000minds


As well as research, 1000minds is widely used for teaching

1000minds is used for teaching students in various disciplines in many universities worldwide. Students say that having their own 1000minds login and getting to use 1000minds themselves – e.g. class project – is both empowering and fun.

The skills students develop while learning about Multi-Criteria Decision Analysis (MCDA) or conjoint analysis are very useful, both professionally and personally. Life is all about making decisions involving trade-offs!

Research decision-making

Make research decisions fairly and transparently

Researchers use 1000minds to prioritize research proposals for funding. Research budgets can be allocated across competing research funding applications in favor of ones representing the best value for money.

1000minds is also used for targeting research questions or topics for investigation, e.g. the most innovative or with the greatest impact. 1000minds’ user-friendly processes enable a potentially wide range of stakeholders to be engaged with fairly and transparently.

Research prioritization success story


“1000minds provides an elegant, efficient and transparent way of reaching decisions about 'wicked problems' like sustainability that are contested by multiple 'layers and players' that all want their say.”
