Association for the promotion of the software

Verein zur Förderung der Software openCFS

The association "Verein zur Förderung der Software openCFS" has been founded in 2020 and its main goal is the promotion of the open source software openCFS. The main objectives of the association are

  • Comprehensive maintenance and further development of the open source software openCFS
  • Promotion of the use of openCFS for scientific problems which are solved with the help of numerical simulation, thus leading to new, innovative products for the benefit of mankind (Technology for People)
  • Promotion of the scientific documentation of openCFS and the use of openCFS in higher education
  • Promotion of young scientists, especially students at universities in Austria and Germany and worldwide, in the field of numerical simulation of complex technical systems
