Charles Letailleur

Charles is an Internet professional with over 10 years of experience building disruptive products that give people a simple and easy-to-use Internet experience. Having worked on e-democracy and e-government, as well as open data projects, he is convinced that the social web can make scholarly publishing cheaper and more efficient.

Sylvain Massip

Sylvain holds a PhD in Physics from Cambridge University and has ten years experience in the science and industry sector. As an R&D manager in a start-up company, he has had the opportunity to work with several academic laboratories in a wide range of fields. Passionate about research, he is convinced that scientific communication can be improved, for the benefit of researchers and beyond.

Our history

Sylvains and Charles have known each other since their preparatory classes at engineering school. These two friends share the same values, and yet their knowledge is very different and varied.

2018: they set themselves the challenge of solving problems of access to scientific information using technologies based on artificial intelligence.

They both decided to develop an artificial intelligence-based tool capable of navigating open scientific literature and extracting the most relevant information.

2019: Charles and Sylvain took the crazy decision to put their professional lives on hold to devote themselves to Opscidia. The covid crisis was an opportunity for them to recall the vital importance of developing scientific and technological monitoring tools.


Our vision


Initially, the objective was to create a free hosting platform for open access scientific publications, with the aim of supporting the community in favor of open science.


But we quickly realized that it lacked essential elements: a repository of information and a method to find this information. Thus was born our scientific and technological monitoring software.


Opscidia uses artificial intelligence to use databases of scientific articles in order to support R&D and innovation within private companies.


Today, our solutions are used by large groups, consulting companies, publishers, public institutions and higher education establishments in France and abroad.

Our values

technological intelligence tools for R&D

Safe and ethical usage of AI


We are in an era where artificial intelligence technologies are emerging. Their uses are not always ethical. We have chosen to put artificial intelligence at the service of innovation. But we remain attentive to the limits that this technology can reach and the use that can be made of it.

Supporting open science journals


Opscidia helps publishers of open science journals by supporting their efforts to facilitate their publication work and by providing them with DOIs.

The “publication” part of our site is essentially devoted to the free hosting of its scientific journals. 

Facilitating access to scientific results


Opscidia has created an open source software to make science accessible and understandable to the general public. The objective of this tool, the Science Checker, is to give an objective opinion on a scientific subject by taking into account all scientific articles that seek an answer to the given scientific subject.

Our team

Today, the Opscidia team is a diverse and multicultural group of 9 people. A perfect mix of researchers, developers and managers.

The Opscidia team has a strong expertise in NLP, data visualisation and web semantics. As well as extensive experience in the research, technology and deeptech sectors.
