The Insigneo Institute is dedicated to realise the vision of in silico medicine. To achieve this, Insigneo members require access to diverse software solutions to support their research. The nature of this software covers a broad range, including many programming languages and encompassing commercial, open source and in-house software. The main focus of our software workgroup is to provide a focus for the development of, and support for, Insigneo software tools. This includes negotiating with commercial entities to improve license agreements and the development and maintenance of specialised software.

The workgroup actively promotes the use and development of in house software and projects developed under the umbrella of the Insigneo Institute (including MAF applications, VPH-Share technologies, VPH-HF). It also provides advice and support for grant applications that require new software development. Finally, this workgroup encourages training activities to promote best coding practice to ensure software sustainability and training for the use of both in house and commercial software in collaboration with other workgroups.
