In accordance with Government policy on Open Source Software (OSS), applicants whose proposed research aims to produce software outputs must specify a proposed software exploitation route in the case for support. When the project is completed, the software should be exploited either commercially, within an academic community or as OSS. Further information on OSS can be found at www.opensource.org
Please note: The policy on exploiting research and development software does not apply to software developed in the areas of defence, national security or law enforcement. Neither does it apply to software developed by Trading Funds.
