How do these surveys help the community?

By asking these questions we can get a deep insight in the needs of our community. It helps us focus on the type of projects we scout for at universities and with researchers. Based on this feedback we’re going to do an analysis on the categories and see if we can get more relevant content.

More surveys are coming up!

A big thank you to everyone who gave their time to help us improve the platform, we highly appreciate it, and together we’re creating a better Wevolver!
