CIS will contribute to the project in the design and implementation of the reference Architecture and the system implementation, i.e.:
Particular interest of CIS is in the area of integration of IR methods into existing SDIs and access control and service security. Through their close connection to Universities and CIS academic partners CIS is well linked in scientific networks on a world-wide level, CIS will also substantially contribute to dissemination of project results. cismet GmbH will exploit project results commercially.
