Scientific cooperation is an important driving force for innovation, and hence leads to the development of novel products. We foster frequent and close exchange with a large number of scientists through national and international projects. Our primary role in most of these projects is centred about providing or augmenting the internal communication infrastructure through customized web-based services. When possible, we continue the development of interesting prototypes, which regularly emerge during projects, and mature these ideas into new products thereafter.

Papercore is a public read-write database, which aims at helping scientists to cope with this development. Papercore collects summaries of scientific papers, in particular in physics, where this database is optimized to. Note that a summary is not just an abstract: A summary should contain the core information of a paper, including a little introduction, basic definitions, outline of methods and key results of a paper, such that a specialist in the field does not have to look into the paper anymore, basically. The rule of thumb is that a summary should be 1/10 of the length of the corresponding paper, the compression factor is automatically computed by Papercore for each summary.
