About 3 years ago the new 'Law of Science' in Spain came into force to regulate intellectual property rights (IPR) in research centers. Within this framework, CIMNE's intellectual property legislation was developed. This internal regulation of CIMNE regulates the intellectual property rights of the products of CIMNE, as well as the distribution of benefits in the case in which those products generate income. One of its main objectives is to encourage researchers to create novel products.

In this CIMNE Coffee we will proceed to explain the Intellectual Property model developed by GiD, which has been the first that has been created in CIMNE. The idea is that this model serves as an example for other products that can be developed in CIMNE.


Dr. Abel Coll is the coordinator of the Pre and Post-processing group at CIMNE, which main product is GiD. He joined CIMNE in 2004 and, since then, his research has been focused on meshing and computational geometry issues. He has participated actively in several research projects, highlighting the coordination of VELaSSCo project (dedicated to the post-processing and visualization of large numbers of simulation results).
