The Stardis consortium is intended for engineers and researchers who are willing to be fully autonomous when using Stardis; this includes:
- the possibility to integrate Stardis in their current heat transfer simulation toolchain;
- the capacity to modify the code for specific purposes;
- a detailled understanding of underlying algorithms;
- a participation to development choices.
The free license of the Stardis environment already grants its users the right to freely run the software, study its behavior, modify its source code or redistribute it. In addition, the consortium provides its members with long-term training, in direct contact with the Stardis development team. Consortium members are also invited to take an active role in the scientific and technical management of the project.
All consortium members sit at the consortium committee. This committee is gathered once a year, reviews achievements and the allocation of resources for the past year. Its function is also to debate orientation and development choices for the future.
From an administrative point of view, the Stardis consortium is not a legal structure; it is a service offer proposed by |Méso|Star>. Joining the consortium simply comes down to subscribing to this service offer.
The cost of joining the consortium depends on the size of the member and the length of the subscription.
