Research

We undertake short and medium term research projects, generally exploring relationships between rural communities and their use of technologies. Whilst we do not prepare funding bids we do help communities to identify appropriate sources of funding for technology or learning based projects. Typically, a research project will include desk and interview techniques. We also undertake audit and evaluation projects.

We can carry out feasibility studies or market research to identify ideas and opportunities for rural projects. This can be an extremely useful, preliminary step prior to commiting to major initiatives. We have recently invested in establishing an online survey and questionnaire facility allowing us to conduct in-depth research based on skillfully engineered sets of questions. [More...]

Projects and new developments involving rural communities will require business planning. Failing to plan is almost guarantees planning to fail! We have substantial experience of producing business plans to help guide projects to successful fruition and if necessary, secure appropriate funding. We can also offer support for project management and implementation.
