Research is currently communicated on hundreds of different pages - making it impossible for people to follow a researcher or a research field in its entirety. That's the problem.
We bring all the content around research to one place. That's the solution.
We are an international team with the ambition to bridge the gap between academia and society. We tackle problems in the research process from technical and communication perspectives.
Our vision is to make research available and relevant for everyone.

"INCEND is able to engage the reader/participant in a more blended fashion, providing research as experience rather than just inflow-outflow. That part is great."
"INCEND really looks promising! I like the team's devotion, they have some pretty cool ideas. I also have the feeling this is just the tip of the iceberg and more awesome things will come."
"INCEND will make available formal and informal, professional and personal materials from researchers that will greatly enlarge the view of research, how it is done and what its implications might be. By aggregating information in many forms and providing networking opportunities it could become the home of vibrant, diverse communities of people interested and engaged in research."
"Having spoken with the INCEND team about their plans, it’s clear that a portal like this would have considerably enhanced my Masters experience. Easy access to such diverse and high quality research will undoubtedly prove invaluable to students from all across the world."
