Microsoft Imagine Programm

Microsoft Imagine for staff and students at the University of Bern

What is Microsoft Imagine Programm?

"Microsoft Imagine Programm was designed to provide the easiest and most inexpensive way for universities to make the latest Microsoft software available in labs, classrooms, and on student PCs. The Dreamspark is an annual membership program for departments that use technology in support of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) courses. The membership provides a complete, inexpensive solution to keep academic labs, faculty, and students on the leading edge of technology."

The license terms also specify that "... let your staff, faculty, and students use such copies, and make one additional copy on their own computer or other device, but only
(a) to develop, support, conduct, or take the STEM courses, labs, or programs you offer;
(b) in non-commercial STEM research on your behalf; or
(c) to design, develop, test, and demonstrate software programs for the above purposes."
