Chinese software industry project

(2006-2009)

The new economy and the globalization trends have brought the new need for an increased international cooperation in the sector of software engineering. The SoftCust project is divided into 2 phases with clear milestones and deliverables. The main goal of this pro ject is to develop a methodology for customizing, securing and commercializing Swiss original software applications on the Chinese market through 4 selected software cases. A SoftCust network will be initialized to achieve software engineering expertise transfer. With a positive result of the SoftCust project, the knowledge-based network should continue to operate. Finally, it should be transferred into a Sino-Swiss association for software business promotion in the Chinese market.
