Docear is doing research in many areas and we have lots of ideas for small projects that could be done. If you are interested in a cooperation, please contact us. A cooperation could be anything from doing some short-term research for your Bachelor or Master thesis or it could be a long-term cooperation. Just let us know your ideas. To get a first impression on which project we offer, have a look here. You could do your research at home or with us in Magdeburg, Germany at OVGU or at the University of California, Berkeley.
As we are an open source project, we have only limited funds. However, in Germany are several programs to finance foreign students coming to Germany. Have a look here to search for appropriate programs and let us know how we can help you applying.
