Since 2014, the Eclipse Foundation has been invited to join European Research projects to assist them in dissemination, community building, and OSS best practices. Today, we are directly involved in several EU projects and are in touch with several others who are interested in joining our dynamic community. Some of these projects are just starting, others are in the middle of their timeline and one is finishing in December 2019. Each of these projects has or will have an Eclipse project created on our forge.
The Eclipse Foundation is a partner in many publicly funded Research projects. It helps consortia members to successfully create, publish, and sustain their code as open source software making the results of the research projects available for commercial or public exploitation.
