About us

The SEEK software is developed by teams at the University of Manchester in the United Kingdom, Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies in Germany, and the University of Leiden, Netherlands.

SEEK is funded as part of the Research Infrastructure project FAIRDOM. You can find out more information about the funding on the FAIRDOM site here
