Start-up from Mainz, Germany: research results on posters

The idea of a common company, Sébastien Charles, Nicolas Katte and Santi Porta on a warm September evening last year, had, as they sat together on the shores of the Rhine and Belgian beer drinking. Actually, they were planning at the time, only to set up a joint undertaking, the professional science poster for research institutes and individual scientists should be able to connect. Actually.

Meanwhile, however, are set their goals far higher: In five years, you want to be the leader in the European market with a digital platform, the communication to a new Level, proclaiming you are proud of. Met the 29-year-old chemist Katte, the 42-year-old Charles, a web developer in the chemical industry, and the 37-year-old Porta, who works as a graphic designer in a Spanish hospital, in the Gutenberg Digital Hub of the Rhineland-Palatinate state capital, a merger of regional economy, science and public institutions. In an old wine warehouse on the banks of the Rhine, which is home to numerous spaces for Co-Working places from a simple Desk to the conference room, equipped with professional technology, meet people from industry, Start-ups, the IT-Mittelstand, as well as the science with your ideas for exchange and cooperation.

Great international demand

There the idea was born to form a company that aims to change the communication of science. "Poster presentations are there in science not only at congresses, but also for the short presentation in research groups," says Katte. Among all forms of Publication, the researchers are using, have this Poster has a special meaning to convey to conferences, the main results of the compact. But most of the time you would be shown only once, and dusty then somewhere, because the number of hanging squares in the corridors of scientific institutes is severely limited. "If someone makes this work, then, should not arise from just a simple printed Poster, but we want to make the content in all sorts of digital media accessible", so the idea of the founders. Twitter, for example, will circles in science have always been important for the rapid exchange. With the help of Posterlab-the-art digital tools, the compressed results are also in social media to make the Link easily accessible.

In the case of the founders to prepare for the Interviews carried out with PhD students and Post-Doc scientists, the interest in this kind was the networking to be very large. "Larger and larger parts of the research held in the Institute across," says Katte. To make the easier target of their efforts. Participants should log on Posterlab online and get all the necessary digital tools available. "Different access permissions about who is allowed to give to put it crudely, just to chime in, and who is allowed to switch the Whole free distinguish." Still this is all future music, the System is still in the final development, the company recruited for it staff.
