With its four pictograms, the “GoCoRe!” logo symbolizes the sharpness of the “cutting edge” of this new academic discipline (Cutting Edge of Cyberscience). The constituents comprise the idea of rule of law (pictogram “§”) as well as the consideration of monetary re-sources, and the inclusion of the analysis of effectiveness and efficiency potentials (pictogram “€”). These relations are also reflected in the proprietary methodology of “GoCoRe!” – the so called LEXONOMICS perspective. *

Taking Cyberspace into consideration, the emphasis is on the importance of automation that ranges from information technical products and processes to software agents, robots and even cyborgs (pictogram “robot”).

This integration of Artificial Intelligence (AI) is represented by the “robot” pictogram. It should be emphasized that the robot, shown in a traditional attitude of lamentation, raises his arms and also – in theory – appeals to the concept of the rule of law.

The scales pictogram refers to both the concept of the rule of law and the emphasis on resources: on the one hand, the RPF formula (Respect, Protect, Fulfill) demands a balance of legal positions and on the other hand, the scales point out the “Economies of Scale”.

For the purpose of better visualization, only parts of the logo are colorized. The colorfulness of the logo and of the header of this webpage stands for the openness of the research portal “GoCoRe!” for members as well as for experts of all scientific disciplines, not just those at the TUD.

The requirement is only that their contribution encourages the contouring of the “cutting edge”, or the arrow-like focus of academic outcomes for practice (“Impact Ambition”).


The logo of the research portal “GoCoRe!” is an innovative image-word brand as a pilot for “academic design”.
