Java-MRUI License Agreement
The Parties hereto are The Consortium (as defined below) and Licensee (also defined below).
The “CONSORTIUM” developed the Java-based MRUI software in the context of EU projects:
- TMR, FMRX-CT97-0160, 1998-2001, ‘Advanced Signal Processing for Medical Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Spectroscopy’
- MRTN-CT-2006-035801, 2006-2010, ‘Advanced Signal Processing for Ultra-Fast Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopic Imaging, and Training – FAST’
- PITN-GA-2012-316679, 2012-2017, ‘Transforming Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy into a Clinical Tool – TRANSACT’.
The CONSORTIUM, and the researcher (“LICENSEE”) agree, effective as of the date of registration to the jMRUI website, as follows:
