The scientific software industry

We have published a report which was prepared thanks to support by Durham University. It provides an overview of the scientific software industry, with a particular emphasis on materials modelling and discussed the following topics:

  1. The structure of the software industry.
  2. Requirements for software development: in-house and through collaboration.
  3. Routes to market for scientific software, e.g. via software houses or direct licensing into specific industries.
  4. Commercialisation requirements: standards, IP ownership, licensing schemes.
  5. Warranty and liability issues.
