Organizational Participants

Organizational participants are organizations such as companies, research institutes or universities that commit to

  • contribute a minimum of 6 months of a full time employees per project year to the overall project using their own funding,
  • contribute to around 5 to 10 web-based coordination meetings annually, and
  • attend a semi-annual expert meeting, generally for two days using own funding.

These meetings are used to coordinate current work and to steer future development. As far as possible, these coordination meetings will be collocated with an international or a national IBPSA conference.

The operating agents can reassess the organizational membership annually and terminate organizational memberships after such annual period, if the contributions of an organization does not meet the above requirements.
