The FZK is not a commercial company :
Forschungszentrum Karlsruhe is one of the biggest science and engineering research institutions in Europe and funded jointly by the Federal Republic of Germany and the State of Baden-Wuerttemberg.
There are commercial BOINC projects but this one isn\'t one of those.
Exactly :) This is a pure basic science project and all data we find will be made published in scientific journals an made accessible to all. It is true that the FZK is organized as a company for various reasons, but it is a non-profit corporation, i.e. we are not able to make any profits at all. Should any of our results have commercial value, the proceeds will go back to research. Should this be the case (we do not anticipate this at the moment), we will notify the participants at once.
