Open Source stimulates research
Due to our R&D attitude we have a natural bond with universities. We strive to stimulate research and education through involvement in M.Sc. and Ph.D. projects. Many universities worldwide use OpendTect, the Open Source part of our seismic interpretation system, to teach courses and for research purposes. In addition, we offer free academic licenses to universities for all commercial (closed source) plugins for OpendTect Pro.
"It's great working with dGB for R&D and M.Sc. student projects."

Universities can get access to the following commercial OpendTect Pro plugins developed by ARK CLS, Earthworks and Sitfal at a special discounted rate.
Academic licenses can only be used for academic purposes and not for commercial exploitation. In return dGB, the OpendTect software and, if applicable, Estimages, ARK CLS, Eartworks and Sitfal should be acknowledged where appropriate and relevant research results should be shared if possible. This scheme has become very popular because of the Open Source character of OpendTect.
