In addition to online services, EDINA engages in projects geared to development activities that inform and develop the operation of EDINA national services, either producing new services or improvement in existing services. These are generally externally-funded and often in partnership with other institutions.

EDINA employs expert staff, including some who have national and international recognition, to provide a wide range of services that help our clients and customers to reduce their costs and increase their productivity. We also work with many important national and international groups, including governmental, educational, standards development, research data, commercial, and web services organisations.

We are always interested in discussing new partnerships and R&D, and in providing commissioned services. If you are interested in partnering with us, or commissioning us to develop and deliver your service, please contact us.
