SPACE works to support researchers looking to better understand phone/life balance, problematic phone use, phone usage patterns and, more broadly, how individuals and society relate to technology.

Our Services

Through our trusted consultancy and data sharing services, we are able to provide you with access to the quantitative evidence you need for your cutting edge research. 

Our Privacy Policy and user Terms and Conditions stipulate that any data collected may be used for research purposes.  We are able to collect and share data with recognized research institutions (e.g. Universities) on an anonymous and aggregated basis.  We are fully compliant with all GD PR requirements.  

We charge a small consultancy fee for collecting, organizing and sharing any existing data in an appropriate and reliable fashion.  This includes drawing from more than 50,000 active data sets, or building additional or bespoke functionality to test your hypotheses.
