«We believe that if we have to create a user manual, then the software is too complicated»
We provide the technical know-how behind the FAB online presence with our online survey and reporting software.
We have partnered with Foster & Brown Research for many years and our case studies are described on our online surveys website
Prima Bio breeds and trials new eucalyptus varieties for forestry and ornamental uses. The forestry work is directed at both biomass and pulpwood production. The ornamental work is concentrated on the development of hybrid varieties for the nursery stock and cut foliage markets. Prima Bio works with clients and partners in all these topics. Prima Bio also works closely with Silvigen Ltd in promoting and developing the use of eucalyptus and other fast-growing trees for short rotation forestry for biomass energy.
We completed the 4th Online Pupil Survey in Gloucestershire this year just before Easter. We had over 20,000 responses this time and cumulatively there is now a database of over 70,000 individual responses since we started the survey in 2006. This year our coverage extended to Further Education colleges as well 6th forms, Primary schools and Secondary schools.
A major upgrade to our Lodeseeker™ online reporting tool is due in September 2012, so major resource is being directed towards completing that. We've put in a lot of effort to enhance data visualisation, to make it easier for non-specialists to interpret what the data is saying.
