Cate Ovington, the visionary behind The Knowlogy Group, recognised that traditional scientific research training was to regimented and still stuck in the classroom.

Also, that mentoring and other support services were not flexible enough to provide timely and effective results. So, in 2020 Cate founded The Knowlogy Group, a company that is revolutionising the way scientists learn about quality, regulations, and standards.
