Academic research

The structured search engine for academic research

The web is a source of a vast amount of information. But it's also the greatest information chaos. It's unstructured which makes it extremely hard to use the data for academic research. Our search engine provides researchers at national statistical offices and universities with easy access to clean structured data. Use web data insights from 600 million domains, including 25 million company websites, for your statistical analyses, verification purposes or research focus expansion. Analyze the Covid-19 impact on digital transformation and technology adoption, measure countries' digital economies and examine how cybercrime affects businesses and governments.
