A UGIG is an opportunity to participate in research studies approved and posted on the UGIG Research website. Compensation is commonly offered to participants for their time and effort in contributing to research. After a participant fills out their Profile Packs, administrators will use that information to match them to a qualifying UGIG.
After you have filled out your Profile Packs, we will match you with available UGIGs. When we find a match, you will be notified via text or email. You then have the option to accept or decline the opportunity. If you accept, you will be prompted to visit our website to choose a time (timeslot) to participate. The researcher will then confirm your timeslot, and you will be all set to participate. You can also sign up for a UGIG by going to the Explore page and clicking on a UGIG.
The data you will be asked to provide in your profile pack will be information unique to you, which may benefit researchers in their fields of study. These questions may relate to your favorite sports team, experience during Covid-19, or ethnic background. Any information which you feel uncomfortable sharing can be omitted.
The information you record in your Data Wallet will be used by UGIG to match you with specific opportunities. However, only UGIG admins will have access to that information and it will not be sold or distributed in any way without your direct and explicit consent.
