Develop research app for universities and research institutes
Research projects at universities, scientific institutions and research institutes are increasingly using mobile apps to find study participants and collect data. With the help of a research app, you can more easily contact potential study participants, conduct surveys or provide content and information about studies.
The evaluation of the effectiveness of therapies, digitally-supported interventions or knowledge transfer can also be optimally supported by mobile apps.
Hybrid Heroes has been working for many years on apps for renowned universities in Germany and around the world, which have been used in studies and have delivered significant results. We support you in your social, health or natural science research project with the right software tailored to your individual needs.
We have already developed research apps with these partners
Use cases for research apps

Professional psychological care on the move. Together with the Freie Universität Berlin, the Swiss Red Cross and other practice partners, we have developed a platform for e-mental health projects. The platform includes a mobile app for iOS and Android and a web-based application for users. Study managers can monitor studies and create content with the help of an administration interface and a content management system. The platform is currently being used in several research projects to evaluate the effectiveness of low-threshold psychological interventions.
Capture and compare joyful moments of the child's development. The app kleineWeltentdecker from the Department of Developmental Psychology: Infancy and Childhood at the University of Zurich is aimed at parents who want to document the development of their children. At the same time, the app is used for research purposes at the university, thus opening up another source of data to supplement the surveys conducted at the institute. The app contains a questionnaire on child development, a development diary and push notifications on new questions based on the child's age.
Arriving safely in Switzerland. For the Swiss Red Cross (SRC), we developed SUI - the self-help app to improve the quality of life of Arabic-speaking refugees in Switzerland, whose effectiveness is currently being studied at the University of Bern. SUI approaches many topics in a playful way and offers easy-to-understand and well-structured information on life and everyday issues in Switzerland. In addition, the app offers support for mental stress and valuable tips and exercises for dealing with sleep disorders, stress and pain. It is also possible to contact an SRC expert directly via the app.
