Iris is maintained by the Iris Core Group in the realm of the Iris Institute. The maintenance supported by the member countries of the Iris Core Group can only be limited and restricted to the basic updates necessary and will not cover the implementation in other countries.

In order to give users the opportunity to contribute to the maintenance and update of the Iris system and thereby guarantee the long term availability of the Iris software a support model was put in place. Contributing to the Iris development by agreeing to support Iris will give you two advantages:

  • Support Iris: You will help to guarantee availability and up-to-date software that is adapted to ICD updates and software evolvements.
  • Receive support: Additional benefits for your country as listed below will help you to implement Iris in your country.

All financial support received by the Iris Institute will be used to maintain, update and further evolve the Iris software.
