OpenWebSearch.EU has kicked-off with a consortium meeting in Berlin. 46 representatives of the project partners got together in a hybrid meeting format in September to exchange ideas and make plans for the successful execution of the project.
For the research project OpenWebSearch.eu, funded by the European Commission, the Open Search Foundation is looking for employees in the Munich area (working location Starnberg).
Within the framework of the research project, the Open Search Foundation, together with 14 renowned European universities and data centres, is developing the foundations for a European Internet search: open, transparent and distributed.
