The Consortium is administered by ASGA (Association scientifique pour la Géologie et ses Applications), a non-for-profit organization authorized for Crédit-Impôt Recherche tax (tax deduction under French law).

There are three levels of Consortium membership (Read more for details below):

  • Industrial members (Companies & organizations)
  • Restricted Industrial members (Companies with 30 or less employees)
  • Academic members (Universities and non-for-profit organizations)

The regular industrial members have full access to RING research outputs, including free of charge source code.

Restricted Industrial Members

Small companies of 30 employees or less are eligible to the restricted industrial member status. The annual cost for restricted industrial members is 5,000 Euros (plus an entry fee of 5000 EUR).

Restricted industrial members have limited rights on Consortium outputs compared to regular industrial members.
