Since it’s foundation, AION has become an encyclopaedic power. We became widely known by digitising Otto’s educational dictionaries and later other historical encyclopaedias. The period in which encyclopaedias played a key role resulted in long-term cooperation with the Euromedia publishing house and in an intensive work on many encyclopaedic publications of the Universum series.
We decided to make a fundamental change in the direction of our company soon after we understood the ingenious and massive contribution of Wikipedia.
We therefore made extensive use of the experience we had gained in the field of digital law and legal information systems. First in Slovakia in collaboration with the Poradca podnikateľa publishing house, later also in the Czech Republic with the Laws for People service.
Our last important milestone was the cooperation with the Publications Office of the European Union. We were chosen as a contractor for contract AO 10708 - the Indexing and legal analysis of EU documents. Hundreds of documents published on the EUR-Lex portal, the information systems of the European Parliament and the Court of Justice of the European Union are now being passed through our hand on a daily basis. We create their metadata and connect them to each other through a network of various relevant contexts. Without exaggeration, it could be said that the target group of our service is currently almost half a billion people – the citizens of the European Union.
