One World of Research Resources

World Research Alliance (WRA) is a global voluntary union of independent research practitioners and survey support providers. Our mission is to provide cost-effective one-stop solutions by sourcing capabilities research buyers need in a transparent manner from any country anywhere.

WRA can draw resources from a network of nearly 6,000 service providers worldwide to fulfil any research related task in a modular fashion from simple translation work to complex statistical analysis and reporting.  In particular demand are fieldwork services, simply because rates in anyone country can vary outrageously and we ensure to source the suppliers that offer the better value.

The modular approach means that research buyers can combine services from different providers into one project, selected based on capability, experience and pricing level.  WRA expedites overall coordination, but research buyers can communicate directly with the different contributing parties, who are not allowed to sub-contract responsibilities.

Within the network, WRA members receive priority in bidding for projects.  Suppliers that contribute to projects abide by a strict code of ethics, but without relying on a simple pledge to do so only.  WRA’s independent QA team audits and verifies performance to ensure work is in accordance with the required standard, and therefore quality assurance goes beyond lip service.
