About us

Empowering the future of research, one experiment at a time.

Design of Experiments (DoE) has been a staple in research for ages, yet Effex introduces a transformative perspective to it. Originating from extensive research at KU Leuven’s Biostatistics group, led by Prof. Peter Goos and spearheaded by Dr. Ir. José Núñez Ares, Effex's methodology for experimental plans surpasses traditional approaches in efficiency. With keen insights from our clients, we've developed a modern, web-based platform that meets current industry demands, offering users top-tier experimental planning tools, rather than settling for outdated software.
