Academic Programs by Solver Partners

Due to our collaboration with our solver partners for CPLEX, GUROBI , MOSEK, XPRESS, there have been a few changes regarding the licensing of these solvers. The solver vendors now offer a free academic license to members of their academic initiative programs.

There are two ways in which you can use these free solver licenses within GAMS:

  1. Members of these programs can either purchase a GAMS link license, which offers the same functionality as a GAMS/Solver license.
  2. Or they can extend their base system with an OSI Solver link license, which is free of charge, but does not offer the full functionality of a GAMS/Solver link license. For details please see below.

With the exception of the XPRESS solver, all solver links will be activated through the GAMS licensing mechanism. A GAMS/Solver license has to be used within the scope of the GAMS license agreement. If you order a GAMS Solver link or an OSI Solver link, you confirm that you are a member of the particular program and that the usage of the solver license will comply with the terms of the vendors license agreement as explained on their web site.
