Reference path for employees and students

The license is financed from central funds of the CAU without the user having to share the costs. Those interested in STATA submit an application to the responsible STATA officer depending on the institution (or to the data center) in which compliance with the license conditions is guaranteed and confidentiality is agreed with regard to the access information provided.

STATA enjoys great popularity in the agricultural and nutritional sciences (AEF), at the WiSo faculty and at the Inst. F. World Economy (IfW), so that there is also long-term expertise there. In the interest of the most direct possible access to the software package, STATA officers have been appointed in these facilities through which users of these facilities can access the software. For this purpose, the institution-specific applications must be submitted there.
Those who are eligible for STATA outside of these facilities should contact the data center.
