How we work

Crowdfunding 2.0


 

Why did we start ScienceShip.com?

Science and business

We build bridges between the world of scientists, researchers and popularizers of science and the world of entrepreneurs and business.

Scientific research and R&D activities are often very expensive, time-consuming and associated with the significant risk of brining a less than satisfactory outcome. It is not easy to bring your ideas to the right people and attract investors. This is even harder for younger scientists or researchers who work far from major research centres.

The science community needs a way, and a place, to present its plans and actions which will enable scientists to show to people, in a quick and straightforward way, their ideas or work and provide them with the opportunity to obtain co-financing and attract the attention of investors.

 

Our solution

e-Platform which connects science and business

  • Market and social co-financing of scientific and popular science projects
  • Presenting ideas and searching for investors in the "total support" option – before you even start the project within crowdfunding
  • Assessment or verification of key Projects by the Scientific Council or Experts.
  • Gamification – contests and projects related to science and the popularisation of science.
  • A chance for young scientists to develop professionally and implement their dream projects. A chance for businesses hungry for groundbreaking ideas.

 

Scientific Board

Experts and their role

Each project launched on the ScienceShip.com Website is first verified by the Scientific Board which is comprised of experts from various fields. The Scientific Board, acting in cooperation with ScienceShip.com, guarantees:

  • quality – quality assessment of projects in individual areas and joint decision-making on whether to publish a project on the Website
  • collaboration – interdisciplinary and intra-university collaboration (with the worlds of medicine/ biotechnology/ IT/ technical universities, etc.)
  • credibility – credibility is crucial for the project’s success and its support on the part of the society andinvestors
  • • experience – experience in scientific projects

At the same time, projects can be assessed and verified by other Experts appointed by the Service Provider to the extent and for the purposes indicated above.
