One of the critical ways that PTI empowers scientific research at IU and in the state of Indiana and the nation is through the distribution of open source software.
Open source software aids the development of the Indiana economy. These solutions often are used to the benefit of the private sector in the state and the nation. The production of open source software enhances IU's competitiveness for federal grant funding, aiding PTI and IU in bringing research funding and creating new high quality jobs in Indiana.
The production of open source software also enhances the value of IU's scholarly output, since its use aids in reproducability and testability of scientific research.
