Research projects for academics / researchers

For academics and other researchers whose projects are funded as part of a grant or from available funding, we can arrange a license that suits your circumstances.

Please talk with us about your project so we can help you.

Student-led research projects

Special heavily discounted student licenses are available for students using 1000minds for their projects. Eligibility depends on you, the student, being the project’s lead researcher – i.e. your project, thesis or dissertation.

In our experience, it’s common at many universities for your institution or department to cover your license fee to use 1000minds for you as an educational or research expense.

1000minds for teaching

As well as for research, 1000minds is widely used for teaching in many disciplines.

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!

We can enable each of your students to have their own 1000minds login so they can use the software themselves, including for class projects. Student feedback confirms that this is both empowering and fun.

Our pricing schedule (available on request) depends on how many students you have.
