The European Materials Modelling Council is organising within the EMMC-CSA project a Workshop on Business Models for Materials Modelling Software.
Are you interested in software commercialisation and business models relevant to the field of materials modelling? EMMC would be pleased to invite you to a workshop where you can learn from a range of experts.
Overview & Preliminary Schedule
Successful software for materials modelling has an expected lifetime of many decades. This long-term nature requires a sound legal and business foundation: the ownership of software must be clearly established and the license models need to be carefully thought through to ensure a sustainable development and maintenance of the software and impactful exploitation by both academic and industrial end-users. Different business models need to be considered when developing a strategy for long term sustainability of software and sustainment of the operation.
A detailed study was published in a White Paper “Business Models and Sustainability for Materials Modelling Software” which can be found here https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.2541723
Experienced Software Owners will share their successful practice with the audience and will cover open-source, non-profit and commercial business models. A preliminary schedule can be found below.
The workshop is aimed in particular at PostDocs, academic research and industrial R&D group leaders or advanced PhD students who actively work on materials modelling software and codes and are looking into business models. The workshop will be a collaborative event. We expect active interactions between impulse speakers, trainers and motivated participants.
Hence, we would like to invite everyone who has interest to express their experience and aim to participate and to apply for one of the 50 available places. An application form (below) needs to be filled in by 10th May 2019 and sent to email@example.com for approval.
