During 2013 - 2017, SIVECO will continue to provide software development and maintenance services for CORDIS, the European Union's research portal.
Over 34,000,000 pages viewed and up to 4,000,000 documents downloaded each year - these are some figures associated with the European research portal CORDIS (Community Research and Development Information Service), for which SIVECO Romania provides software development and maintenance services.
CORDIS is the European research gateway meant to facilitate the collaboration within research projects, especially in the context of the EU Framework Programmes for Research and Technological Development. The portal also aims to enhance dissemination of research results, with an emphasis on sectors crucial to Europe's competitiveness, and to promote the spread of knowledge fostering the innovation performance of enterprise and the societal acceptance of new technology.
Ranked in the top 10 European Union’s websites by traffic criteria (over 6, 4 million pages viewed in 2012), the portal provided last year an availability of 99. 71%.
SIVECO’s expertise and services target the development of CORDIS core systems, in order to provide to its users a permanently improved experience in terms of navigation and time needed to find and access relevant information, as well as to facilitate the information exchange through interactive communication tools.
Thus CORDIS becomes a dynamic and interactive information service for the dissemination of the results of EU-funded research projects, speeding up the access to all relevant information and publications.
With a strong online presence of more than 20 years, the portal enjoys a high reliability among users due to its high performance and availability.
According to the annual survey carried out among the portal’s users and visitors, 86.7% of them appreciated the improvements of the portal in 2012.
“We’ve developed and maintained the CORDIS portal for the last 4 years - an extremely demanding project. The experience gained from these projects for the European Commission is positioning our company as a European leader for implementing complex integrated projects, the business development within the European space being one of our key objectives” stated ªtefan Morcov, Deputy Vice-president, SIVECO Romania.
In 2009, SIVECO Romania was the first Romanian software company involved in a large IT services project implemented for the European Commission.
Recently, SIVECO Romania signed a new framework contract for the development and maintenance of CORDIS during 2013-2017 period, after winning the open tender organized in 2013 by the Publications Office of the European Union.
The new framework contract for CORDIS supplements an already large series of projects implemented by SIVECO for various EU institutions and it is already the third major framework contract signed by the company in 2013 in this area.
