Funding

The community is fully self-financing through its members’ regular contributions, which ensure its sustainability. All members contribute financially with an initial contribution to feed the product roadmap, and on a ongoing basis to sustain support and coordination community activities. On top of this contribution, members often make one-off contributions to the community product roadmap in two ways:
 

In-kind one-off contribution through developments of components that can be readily integrated in the .Stat Suite, relying on internal staff or their own sub-contractors trained on .Stat development. In-kind contribution can sometimes take the shape of promotion activities, testing, sharing of marketing material or user research, etc.

 

Financial one-off contribution through grant procedure based on a specifically agreed Statement of Work (SoW).
