MyScienceWork to Set Up Shop in Silicon Valley

Your platform to access scientific content has been selected by the Luxembourg government to join the Plug and Play program in early April. Next stop: California!

One month ago at MyScienceWork, we opened our entire catalogue, making all documents centralized on the scientific communication platform available for download without registration. Today, we’re ready to tackle the US market: MyScienceWork has been chosen to participate in a program of the Plug and Play Tech Center, based in Sunnyvale, CA. Silicon Valley, here we come!

Plug and Play is a business accelerator that specializes in growing tech startups. By working with the incubator for three months, starting in April, MyScienceWork hopes to create new partnerships with universities and corporate partners across the Atlantic.

It’s certainly a big move and we make no attempt to contain our excitement! “The approach to research and communication in the US is quite different than in Europe. Our goal is to open a branch of MyScienceWork, to create new partnerships and to meet VCs,” CEO Virginie Simon says enthusiastically. “This is very exciting and Silicon Valley is the perfect place for that, as it’s such a rich ecosystem of universities and innovative companies.”

We’ll keep you posted on any developments taking shape under the California sun!
