The Welsh Digital Data Collection Platform is an open and free collaboration aimed to make it easy for researchers and students to collect data without the need for traditional paper-based forms. The service was created from an acute need to be scale up smaller research projects to an all-Wales level. We strongly believe that this opportunity should be available to all students, academics and clinicians in Wales without the need being limited by great costs. A digital data collection platform therefore allows research to be conducted at a larger scale with increased data security and improved accuracy.
