The Valid Research Approach

Valid Research Approach Hero Image

At Valid Research, we bring high-quality academic research protocols to bear in challenging real-world scenarios where results are often needed urgently. We can provide a complete end-to-end service, from applying for funding through to delivering fully analysed results, or we can provide any of our services in isolation to support existing research and evaluation programmes. Sometimes we are brought in as specialist researchers to conduct interviews and facilitate focus groups, or to analyse the results of completed studies.

We’re happy to work with you in a way that meets your requirements, objectives, timescales and budget.

Whatever your requirements, you are assured of a professional service that follows our three-phase approach:
