Since 1999, student work has been conducted using RISE, either for farm assessments or, for example, with a view to further developing the method’s indicators and application.
Where a bachelor, master or PhD thesis is completed as part of a research or consultancy project (with a project budget), the normal fees for a single-user licence apply (CHF 740 incl. VAT / € 660 or USD 745 excl. VAT). Read more here: Research price list
Where a bachelor, master or PhD thesis is completed without funding, we can provide RISE free of charge, following verification. However, this also means that we can only provide minimal support. Additional support is charged at CHF 125 incl. VAT / € 120 or USD 125 excl. VAT per hour.
We will arrange a meeting with you and possibly your supervisor in order to clarify all administrative and technical questions, including whether you will need to attend a training course.
We ask you to send us a copy of the thesis upon completion; we can treat the work as confidential if you so wish. Provided we have your consent, we would be pleased to present the work to the public on our website. Please also tell us the name of your university and department and your supervisor. This will allow us to better understand your context and offer you optimal support.
