Cost estimates

Our services are contracted on an hourly basis (presentet excluding value added taxes), and our prices include some basic infrastructure to get started. In case of projects needing secure data locations (like TSD) or heavy computational nodes (like Saga), such project infrastructure will not be handled by CAPRO, but we can aid you in setting up data structures and workflows once you have that in place. We can advise you in your needs prior to any contracted work is begun. We also have some resources to run smaller projects on our own servers as long as regulatory guidelines are followed.

Hourly project rates cover human work hours, not computational hours.

Lifebrain, Max Planck Institute

21 January 2023

Mo from Capro provided essential support in conducting a mega-analysis with raw data from about half a million people. She set up and maintained the computing environment on a HPC so that we could run the analysis smoothly and without the data ever leaving the secure storage location.

R-Ladies website (WordPress to Hugo)

24 January 2023

I’ve witnessed Mo’s masterful revamping of the R-Ladies website. She’s put a lot of care in creating a professional and beautiful interface, but also in creating sustainable update workflows for humans and machines. Her web development skills increase faster than Hugo version numbers, she’s very resilient to any 502 thrown at her, and she’s a kind and thoughtful collaborator. 200/10 would recommend working with her!
