Community Facilitation, Research Project Coordination, Scientific Research, Software Development, Data and Knowledge Management, User Interface and Information Architecture, ...

We aim to enable our partners and customers to develop and market smarter products contributing to a sustainable and safer society and environment. Our goal is to incubate an increasing number of high impact products, services and startup companies at the forefront of innovation combined with sustainability and responsibility.
Douglas Connect manages collaborative projects to achieve goals in scientific research, infrastructure development or service provision. Effective collaboration requires many elements including coordination, culture, communications, common understanding, decision making and interoperability. Our field of work involves developing groundbreaking solutions through research, knowledge management, community development and international collaboration.
Douglas Connect provides the expertise to organise, run, support, and manage collaborative research projects, both innovation-oriented and service-based. We can draw on our hundreds of community contacts to assemble the best team for the job, working within an effective virtual organisation structure. We act both as the initiator of independent research projects (eg. in Discovery Informatics, Knowledge Management, Life Sciences, Drug Safety, Environmental Chemistry, Risk Assessment) and as a provider of integrated services for corporate clients in these areas.
