A brief reminder that the EBI  impact survey will close on Monday 18^th
May. Thank you if you have already responded, but if you have not
already completed the survey and wish to do so, we would be grateful if
you could participate as soon as possible. This is an important study in
a number of ways, but in particular, it will be extremely useful to be
able to demonstrate to funding bodies and others the economic benefits
of having freely accessible services and resources for research in the
life sciences.

We are hopeful we can draw on the cooperation and goodwill of our user
community to get as large a response as possible.

Charles Beagrie Ltd is conducting the assessment and the online
questionnaire  is accessible at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/EBI_Impact

It is estimated that the survey will take around 15 minutes.

Within the survey a range of methods and approaches are used including
the hypothetical question of willingness to pay or accept payment to be
without EMBL-EBI services.  We would like to highlight that this
question is being presented as a purely hypothetical one but necessary
to feed into a well known economic model of assessing services that are
without charge (contingent valuation).  If any questions or concerns
arise due to the survey please feel free to respond to this email address.

The results of the survey will be anonymised and disseminated in
aggregate only and all personal data treated as confidential.

Thank you in advance for your and your colleagues participation and
input. We recognise there are many demands on your time. As a token of
appreciation for contributing, all participants who complete the survey
are also given the opportunity to enter a draw to win one of five
Raspberry Pi 2 with Pibow Cases.

Kind regards

Ewan Birney and Rolf Apweiler
Joint Associate Directors, EMBL-EBI
