Knowledge & Services
How can we help?
Benefit from our extensive knowledge and experience to make your research project a success. We can help you every step of the way and provide solutions that fit your needs. From designing and setting up your research, to data collection, behavioral analysis, and training.
Our consultants have advanced degrees in behavioral sciences and understand how to turn data into meaningful insights. They can translate your research questions into technical solutions, so that you can focus on results.
When designing your research, having a fresh perspective can help you get the most out of your project. Our experienced consultants can help you formulate your research questions, design your study, and find the best technological solutions.
In addition, we know how to build labs in any field of study, for any type of research subject. This includes stationary labs for the workplace and portable labs for on-site locations. Depending on your research questions and subjects, we can help you decide on different aspects of your lab design. How many rooms or how much space do you need? How many video streams need to be recorded simultaneously? How do you control lighting, temperature, and sound?
Our solutions will support you in automating your data collection and save you valuable time, effort, and money. For example, we can help you use the full potential of EthoVision XT’s Trial & Hardware Control. This module allows you to build sophisticated protocols to control external equipment during your study. Not only will this make your work easier, but it will also enhance the reliability and validity of your results.
We can also assist you in collecting data in naturalistic settings, so that you can observe your subjects in a real-life context and capture behaviors with minimal influence. Ideal when doing research on user experience, consumer behavior, psychology, or animal behavior.
Data analysis can be time consuming, especially when dealing with observational data. Outsourcing your coding work to a professional partner is an excellent solution to free up time for other aspects of your project. Rely on our experienced, efficient coders to help you with your video data.
Moreover, we can design specific Excel macros to help you perform advanced analysis on your data. And if you want us to take more work out of your hands, we can perform the statistical analyses and present you with a clear overview of the results. This includes analysis of facial expressions, gait behaviors, advanced maze parameters, and much more.
Training that fits your needs
Our product training courses will teach you how to use your equipment in the most efficient way, providing you with a greater return on your investment. Whether you are an experienced or novice user, or whether you need some general training or more specific consultancy, we offer dedicated training courses for your research application.
In our methodology courses, you will learn about behavioral methodology, experimental design, data integration, statistics, and various tools. We customize our training courses to fit your research area, for example in usability testing, neuroscience, entomology, consumer behavior, and many more.
We organize group and individual training courses at a location of your choice. This includes in-house training sessions at one of our offices, on-site training at your research facility, or online webinars.
Rent research equipment
Do you need an observation lab for a specific project? Do you have a stationary lab but want to organize a session at another location? Do you want to study animals in their (natural) living environment? Or do you need a large number of software licenses for educational purposes? When you only need research equipment for a short period of time, renting might be more cost-effective than buying.
We offer a wide range of systems and products for rent, ranging from software licenses to portable labs and complete observational labs. This includes our state-of-the-art Experience Lab in Wageningen, The Netherlands. The Experience Lab has several rooms with set-ups that can be converted into an office, meeting room, or living room setting. This makes it suitable for studies in psychology, consumer behavior, usability testing, human factors, and human-computer interaction.
Another option is to rent lab space at Behavior Bay, located in Silicon Valley, USA. With the combined expertise of Noldus IT and Coitcom this facility offers the best technology for human behavior research. This includes software, completely integrated lab setups, audio and video equipment, and custom facilities. You can also contact expert staff available on-site for demonstration, test supervision, research, and consultancy.
