NAG Academic Community Program

Freedom and flexibility for optimized performance.

The NAG Academic Community Program is designed to give universities and other degree granting institutions the freedom and flexibility of unrestricted use of NAG's product portfolio at significantly lower costs than standard.

The program has been developed to allow freedom from the usual restrictions found within standard software licence agreements so that both staff and students can work freely and independently or as part of a wider collaborative project with ease. There are even ways to allow those not working within the site to use the software and contribute to projects.

The NAG Academic Community Program is available globally, however different programs are available for those residing in North America or Japan.

Program Options

NAG products in the program are grouped together for ease of purchasing and licences are available for both site-wide and departmental usage.

  • Option 2: All serial implementations of NAG's numerical libraries (Fortran, C, .Net and the Toolbox for MATLAB®)
  • Option 3: Option 2 plus NAG's HPC Libraries for high performance computing
