ForDigital uses the social bussines solution "UniConnect" for the collaboration between the locations Mannheim and Karlsruhe. The platform is hosted at the University Competence Center for Collaboration Technologies powered by IBM (UCT)and bases on IBM Connections.

To use the platform, a registration is necessary. Therefore, your full name and email address is required. Please make use of your university email address, which will be consulted for verification from UCT. Furthermore, your affiliation to an institute is needed. Currently, an appropriate account is installed for the University of Mannheim and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). Alliance members from other organisations have to state the institute of the particular location.

You can find a detailed description for registration at the UniConnect platform under https://www.uni-koblenz-landau.de/de/koblenz/fb4/iwvi/agschubert/projects/ucc.


Registration process may take up to one day until you get access to the UniConnect platform. You can search for the research alliance by using the search function (just enter "fordigital" into the search field). As it is a moderated community (for members of the research alliance only), your access has to be approved by a moderator. This should not last longer than one day.
