Scientific Communication Infrastructure is a joint venture featuring three partners from different institutions and scientific domains:
The Digital Humanities Research Group of the Department of Computer Science at the Friedrich-Alexander-University of Erlangen-Nuremberg (FAU), the Department of Museum Informatics at the Germanisches Nationalmuseum (GNM) in Nuremberg and the Biodiversity Informatics Group at the Zoologisches Forschungsmuseum Alexander Koenig (ZFMK) in Bonn. The first phase of the project was funded by the German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, DFG) from 2009 to 2012. During this project phase we developed a software system that enables scientific projects especially in memory institutions (museums, archives, libraries) to collect, store, manage and communicate knowledge.
