Eclipse Research Community

Eclipse is used in a wide range of educational and research projects at Universities around the world. They range from using eclipse as a teaching resource in the classroom to projects designed to explore the next generation of computing ideas and theories. This page will give you a few pointers to get you started in exploring the Eclipse research community.

(Several of the projects listed here are funded under the IBM Eclipse Innovation Grant program. You'll find information about the program as well as a complete list of awardees from 2003-2005 on the IBM Scholars website.)

If you'd like to have your project listed here, please email us. You can also discuss your ideas and suggestions for new eclipse research projects on the Technology Project newsgroup
