Research Services

A significant differentiator of Verterra relative to other research providers is our unique blend of research, consultancy and operational delivery services.  This continuum from fundamental science through to on-ground operations gives us the capacity to bring a holistic, integrated, real world approach to research.  In addition, as a small, focused company, we engage highly skilled specialists in their respective fields.  These attributes ensure that we have the capacity to deliver the highest quality research, with the capacity for practical, real world application.

We bring the skills of our scientific staff to the general scientific process:

  • Literature reviews
  • Hypothesis formulation
  • Experimental design
  • Trial design
