MICO will reuse the components developed in a number of further research projects funded by the European Union. Specifically, it will make use of outcomes of the FP7 IP ARCOMEM (OpenIMAJ framework, GATE framework), from the ongoing FP7 projects REWIND (wrt annotator evaluation) and CUbRIK (wrt. combining automatic annotation and relevance feedback), the German THESEUS project (distributed multimedia querying, A/V analysis component evaluation), the FP7 SME STREP CODE (distributed linked data querying, crowd sourcing)
