The goals of Duckling include integrating various resources such as digital hardware, software and data, and building a high efficient and easy-to-use environment over Internet for scientists distributed in different positions to enable a new type scientific action mode.


Duckling consists of UMT, DCT, CLB and DLOG.

Moreover, various application plugins can be developed based on Duckling core services. Currently, there are several general application plugins, such as the Universal Communication Tool (UCT), the Conference Service Platform (CSP) and the Activities Arrangement Tool (AAT)。



To enable resource sharing, data fusion and collaboration working among scientific team members.


Duckling had been used in 63 teams, including the bio-energy, the accelerator mass spectrometry instrument and the atmosphere monitoring.
