Website

RBI needed a website that could clearly present its projects, departments, scientists, and other related information both to the public and to the scientific community. With eleven different RBI divisions and a great number of people working in the Institute, a special care had to be given to integrating the CMS into the existing authentication system and giving the appropriate access rights on all needed levels. eZ Publish CMS, with its extensibility features and enterprise level support available, proved to be the right tool for the job.

O-ZIP (open scientific infrastructural platforms for innovative applications in the economy and society) is an EU structural project by RBI that provides a development platform for start-up labs, SMEs and innovation incubators. The most challenging part of this project was creating concept and visual design.

IRB microsite builder

Our role
  • Concept design
  • Interaction and visual design
  • Content architecture
  • Site development
  • Implementation of ticketing system

As a separate project, we also built a microsite builder system for IRB which enables easy development of new websites for the upcoming conferences the Institute prepares on an almost monthly basis. Currently, the system hosts around 45 different sites, all of them integrated with an internal ticketing system, also developed by Netgen.

In our client's words

Simply put – we were looking for an open source web solution, backed by professional developers and support. This is where the combination of eZ Publish and Netgen proved ideal. Guys at Netgen are experts and have nerves of steel. I would recommend them to anyone in a heartbeat.
