Open Science Awards for Free Research Software: A member of #DigitAg rewarded

For the first time this year, there is the awarding of the Open Science Awards for Free Research Software delivered by the Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation.

Ten software developed by French teams are rewarded for their contribution to the advancement of scientific knowledge.

As part of the second National Plan for Open Science, the Open Science Awards for Free Research software aim to highlight projects and research teams working on the development and dissemination of free software and on the contribution to build a common good.

 

The awards are divided in three categories and recognize:

  • The scientific and technical quality of the software;
  • Building an active community of contributors and users; and
  • The essential effort to provide documentation that facilitates the use and appropriation of software.

The #DigitAg team is proud to count among the lucky winners, a member of our Institut Convergences Agriculture Numérique.

Indeed, an accessit to the Jury Prize was awarded to the GAMA software, of which Patrick TAILLANDIER is co-developer and whose MIAT unit, member of #DigitAg is listed among the development teams.

GAMA is a simulation platform, which aims to provide field experts, modellers and computer scientists with a complete development, modeling and simulation environment for building spatially explicit multi-agent simulations.
