The Code_Aster Professional Network aims to spread and to acknowledge the benefits of Code_Aster Open source and Salome-Meca as open-source softwares. They make it possible to
connect the users within the community beyond the technical and specific exchanges of the forum.

Five actions of utmost importance were retained as a starting point :

  • to create multilateral exchanges (with EDF R&D and between the members) of better quality while raising the limits of a public and anonymous forum ;
  • to increase the visibility of the members on the various applications carried out and the various usages ;
  • to spread privileged information on the roadmaps engaged by the members contributing to the development, including EDF R&D ;
  • to gather common requests to service providers ;
  • to increase the opportunities of co-operative developments.
