How we work

Stat-Gent Crescendo goes above and beyond to deliver unparalleled data analysis services.

To initiate a Stat-Gent project, we invite you for a free intake meeting where we get to know your project, discuss opportunities and constraints,  propose approaches and deliverables with a timeline.

After the intake meeting, we write out a proposal for our collaboration, which may be approved or amended. This can take the form of a phased proposal, where future steps may depend on initial results, and the budget can be cast in various terms, varying from price per hour, week, month  to per project.

If we both agree, Stat-Gent will start the data analysis service relying on state-of-the-art methods. In the end, we summarise objective conclusions in a technical report as well as software codes and presentations adapted to your needs.

A typical Client-Stat-Gent interaction may look like:

Stat-Gent can be involved in specific steps of the data analysis project or for the full trajectory, in a steering, advisory or practical implementation capacity. In case of substantial new methodology development, a research collaboration can be initiated with options for external funding as an upside.

Customised training

To facilitate optimal use of statistical methods in practice, Stat-Gent CRENSCENDO offers customized training tailored to your needs. These training modules complement the courses taught at Institute for Continuing Education in Science, Master of Statistical Data Analysis, and FLAMES.

Customized modules that can be given on-site may just focus on the topics you need, or can illustrate relevant statistical methods using case studies from your practice. Follow-up may be included to ensure successful implementation.

Software solutions

Data analysis projects generally require the use of software packages.

Stat-Gent helps in selecting the best solution for your needs and supports its correct use.

For particular applications we also develop customized software solutions.
