For all those who are interested in licensing GermaNet, please have
a look at the three types of Licence Agreements for different applications and users, and
decide which type of licence is appropriate for you. If you are not sure which type to use, please
- Academic Research Licence Agreement: we offer an academic licence to academic
institutions for research purposes free of charge. There are no fees, but the
licence has to be filled in and
sent back to us along with an email
that describes the intended academic research use.
Please note that we do not give licenses to individuals. Students who are interested in
using GermaNet for a research project or a thesis project should
contact their advisors to obtain a licence for their academic institutions.
- Research and Development Licence Agreement: This license applies to non-academic
institutions and research consortia that include non-academic institutions for the purpose of strictly
internal research and/or internal technology development. Please
contact us for details.
- Commercial Licence Agreement: This license applies to non-academic institutions
and commercial enterprises for the purpose of internal research and/or internal technology
development as well as a non-exclusive right to distribute and market any derived product or
service based on the GermaNet data. Please
