As part of the service that we provide to members, ISME is committed on occasion to undertaking research into topics of interest to our membership. Surveys are commonly used as a method of carrying out this research.

Collected data

Participation in these surveys is entirely voluntary.

Surveys are completed confidentially. For the most part we will not ask for any information from which you may be identifiable. If there is any reason why we require this information we will clearly state why we are asking for it, and for your permission to use it for that purpose.

Once the survey is completed all responses will be collated into a final aggregated and anonymous report.
