Online platform for international research collaboration

Conceptually designing, implementing and operating an online collaboration platform for researchers around the world to connect and share information.
The University of Cologne is a partner in an international research network with 20 other institutions. The University of Cologne asked us to develop an online working environment to support collaboration between the researchers.
Approach

To respond to the needs of all partners, we followed an agile development path by releasing an early first version, then a series of subsequent improved versions.

Result

The platform was very well accepted, and is being creatively used in ways we never imagined. The University is now negotiating further licensing agreements for the platform.
