sciebo is the cloud service of the NRW universities.
sciebo enables the automatic synchronization of data with different end devices, for example PC and smartphone. In addition, the service allows different users to work together on the same documents. Each participant has 30 gigabytes of free storage space at their disposal, and significantly more for research projects as needed.
The participating universities operate sciebo on their own. The data is processed exclusively at three universities in NRW, namely in Münster, as well as in Bonn and Duisburg-Essen. The fact that sciebo is based in NRW means that the German Data Protection Act applies - one of the strictest in the world.
