The Institute of Software of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (ISCAS) joins the OpenChain Partner Program as the second official OpenChain Third Party Certifier in China. This dramatically expands the services available to companies of all sizes in the region and beyond.

“China is the single most important market in the global supply chain, and we are proud to start the year with a significant announcement underlying our progress in this region,” says Shane Coughlan, OpenChain General Manager. “Two key goals for China will be continuing to grow our local community of user companies, and continuing to ensure that the infrastructure to support their work continually improves. ISCAS is a partner we are delighted to work with in this regard.”


Founded on March 1, 1985, the Institute of Software of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (hereinafter ISCAS) is a comprehensive research institute dedicated to the research and development of computer science theory and high and new technology of software.

ISCAS has computer science, computer software, computer application technology, and information security as the key disciplines. The discipline directions are computer science and software theory, basic software technology and systems, theories, methods and technologies of Internet information processing, and comprehensive information system technology.

ISCAS has actively participated in local and international exchanges and cooperation, established extensive scientific and technological exchanges and cooperation with many domestic provinces and cities, and more than 40 countries and regions such as the United States, Europe, Japan and Australia, and established branches in Guangzhou, Guiyang, Qingdao, Nanjing and other places.
