This is a very large scale news portal built using Drupal. It publishes thousands of news articles and research papers on behalf of the EU Scientific project.

I worked on the design, conception, implementation and on-going maintenance and upgrade of the site.

My role was an on-site consultant for the project, covering Germany, Italy and the Netherlands to further develop and support the project.
