WHO

The INSEAD Centre for Organisational Research is open to all INSEAD-affiliated faculty, staff, postdoc, or PhD student.

WHAT

COR can help you plan the administrative details and conduct organisational science research involving working adult participants.

WHERE

Depending on your research, studies can be conducted online, at the INSEAD Asia campus, in public spaces of Singapore, at an industry partner's venue, etc.

HOW MUCH

Access to COR's services is free for INSEAD researchers. However, researchers will have to bear the cost of participant remuneration and venue/transport costs if the studies are conducted off-campus. For more details on costs, please refer to the section on Costs below.

Costs

The costs are largely divided into participant remuneration, Research Assistant (RA) remuneration, and facilities/equipment rental costs (only for off-campus).

We advise that faculty have their PhD students direct and run the studies. For faculty who do not have PhD students, we can help recruit part-time RAs for you. We do not charge any service fees or overhead costs.
