Various aspects of the service provided by PAASP are directly or indirectly related to data analysis. While the PAASP team has been trained to apply data analysis tools and methods, we do believe that additional expertise from highly specialized statisticians will help our clients to establish best data handling practices for relevant projects. To that end, we have partnered with a Belgian company, Arlenda (www.arlenda.com), who understands the scientists’ needs in statistics and provides integrated solutions (from consultancy to software development). Most importantly, collaboration with Arlenda will facilitate PAASP’s strategic focus on Research Quality via Study Design. Key element of this strategy is understanding the planned data analysis before starting and conducting a study.
