EUROPRACTICE Synopsys Classroom Teaching licenses are made available for the teaching and instruction of students in cases where the Institute has too few regular EUROPRACTICE non-commercial research and training licenses for mass-class teaching. The Classroom Teaching licenses have the same functionality as regular EUROPRACTICE Synopsys non-commercial research and training licenses but are made available at lower cost since use is restricted to teaching only and no research use of any sort is allowed.
The following Synopsys Classroom Teaching licenses suites are available:
An application for access to low-cost Synopsys Classroom Teaching licenses requires an initial proposal and renewals require a successful yearly report. In order to be eligible for consideration for Classroom Teaching licenses, institutes must pay the annual charge for 1 or more regular EUROPRACTICE non-commercial research and training licenses of the same suite. The Classroom Teaching licenses must also be located on a separate license server from the regular EUROPRACTICE Synopsys licenses.
Synopsys Classroom Teaching licenses are free of initial license charge but are subject to Classroom Teaching annual charge supplements. Access to Classroom Teaching licenses is at the discretion of EUROPRACTICE and Synopsys.
Institutes ordering Classroom Teaching licenses may also be especially interested in Synopsys' Curriculum Materials. Synopsys' Curriculum materials can be used to implement a new course or supplement content in an existing course quickly and easily. These curriculum materials range from whole semester courses to shorter specific technical presentations and these may be used as courseware for teaching purposes by University members.

To coincide with the end of the year, these reports are due by 1 October at the very latest. Reports must show what you have achieved using your licenses, compared with what you had planned. For each course on which the classroom licenses are used, the following information will be required:
