In order to be able to use the extra information, contents and extensive functionalities for networking the platform, registration, which is free, is required. Our concept is based on the exchange of ideas between different disciplines, sectors and areas - open, on equal footing and focused on applicable solutions.

We reserve the right to refuse registrations.
During registration, each user must create a profile and enter data in an input form. The data is transmitted and checked:
a. If there is a considerable need for revision, the administrators will contact the user, provided that the prerequisites for this are met (e.g. a valid e-mail address).

Entries can be revised, supplemented and updated by the users at any time.
