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.
"It's great working with dGB for R&D and M.Sc. student projects."
--Dr. Roger Clark - School of Earth & Environment, University of Leeds

Universities can get free access to the commercial OpendTect plugins:
- dGB Earth Sciences
- Well Correlation Panel
- Sequence Stratigraphic Interpretation System

- Velocity Model Building
- ARK CLS
- Seismic Spectral Blueing
- Seismic Coloured Inversion
- Seismic Feature Enhancement
- Seismic Net Pay
- Workstation Acces
- Earthworks/ARK CLS
- Deterministic Inversion
- Stochastic Inversion

An Academic license can be used for academic purposes but not for commercial exploitation. In return dGB and the software should be acknowledged where appropriate and relevant research results should be shared when possible. The scheme has become very popular because of the Open Source character of OpendTect.
To obtain an Academic License:
- The Host ID of the computer that will be used
- The Number of simultaneous users
- Whether Workstation Access is needed and if so which data store(s): SeisWorks/OpenWorks and/or GeoFrame-IESX.
