You Asked, We Responded with Pilot-Pack

NCC now offers a licensing option for pilot studies – the NDSR Pilot-Pack. Similar to our Grad-Pack option, Pilot-Pack is a time-limited license of the Nutrition Data System for Research at a reduced price. The Pilot-Pack offers all of the dietary data collection and analysis capabilities of the NDSR.


Designed to facilitate the use of NDSR in pilot and feasibility studies, the NDSR Pilot-Pack is available for preliminary studies conducted to serve as the basis for a larger study.

Additional eligibility criteria include:

  • the study must be no more than two years in length
  • the annual study budget should be equal to, or less than $100,000 in direct costs.

An application form (pdf) must be completed by the Principal Investigator so that eligibility may be determined by NCC.


At the completion of the pilot study period, the cost of the Pilot-Pack version may be applied to the cost of licensing the standard research version of the NDSR software program.
