Moving to a More Robust Platform

The millions of monthly visitors have hardly noticed that the underlying technology of the Science & Technology platform had changed.

Scientific research is the basis for innovation in space travel. This requires opportunities to share scientific knowledge, such as an online scientific platform. This platform must be user-friendly and easily accessible for all scientists, from any location and at any desired time.

The European Space Agency once again chose the Liferay Digital Experience Platform (DXP) as the basis for its new scientific environment. Liferay DXP is open source, with standard components that provide ESA with all required functionality.

ESA can now make optimal use of the existing infrastructure and Liferay expertise that was already present, and thanks to open-source technology, they can be assured that their platforms are future-proof.
