We were delighted to present a paper at this year’s MRS Insights from the Metaverse Conference on Thursday 19th January. Senior Director, Richard Head co-presented ‘How market research must keep up with digital innovation’ with Yuuki Ochiai (EMEA Market Research Manager, Janssen) and Thomas Harwood (Account Director, Ashfield MedComms)

In addition, they explained the processes involved in developing an immersive platform in the healthcare space and the challenge this presented in terms of how to optimally test the usability, functionality, navigation, and content. Finally, they outlined how they delivered the research findings in a similar environment to provide Janssen with the insights they needed to improve the platform and ‘humanize’ the experience.

Overall, their presentation demonstrated that it is necessary for market research itself to keep up with digital innovation in order to optimize the results of the technology being tested.
