Sylvain Massip

Sylvain

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.
