Research and Development Activities
A high proportion of our budget goes into R&D activities. All of our software development activities are F/OSS.
Free and Open Source Software promotes software reliability and quality by supporting independent peer review and rapid evolution of source code. In our experience, building solutions Free Software modules permits fast deployment, better maintainability, and gives security to our users and customers about quality and extensibility. Hence we seek collaboration and support the work of Free Software development teams, such as dyne.org. Most of our software is published under the GNU/GPL license agreement.
We conduct research and development in international consortia, together with academic and commercial partners. Some of our development projects have been funded by the European Commission and by the Federal Ministery for Education, Science, and the Arts.
We are glad to join other development activities which share our focus.
