email:  eliane.fourgeau at


My various career steps have always been guided by a true passion for new technologies that can have a major impact on our markets. It has been my conviction since the early stage of its foundation that Eclipse would be one of these, and I am excited about adding my contribution to the realm. I will dedicate it to helping Add-in Providers, especially European ones, strengthen the prominence of Eclipse in various verticals where they can offer unique differentiators and compelling contributions, while leveraging the huge Eclipse pull for members.

About the Candidate

I am an EDA entrepreneurial veteran with extensive European and USA managerial experience in strategic business development and sales for high-tech startups as well as for prominent design automation companies. In my 20+ year career in the software industry I've had to take my share of the serial challenges faced by various industry sectors: (Automotive, Aerospace, Defense, Telecom, Consumer and Semiconductor) for the development of complex ICs and Embedded Systems.

I received a Master of Telecommunications and Computer Science from ENST (Ecole Nationale Superieure des Telecommunications) in Paris.


TNI-Software is a Software company providing Consultancy and Tools for the Design, Implementation and Test of software dominant Embedded Systems for automotive, aerospace and other transportation industries.

Since December 2004, the company has been a Premium Member of the world-renowned AUTOSAR automotive standardization partnership aiming at establishing an open standard for automotive E/E architecture. TNI-Software has been developing AUTOSAR Builder, an open, Eclipse based suite of tools for AUTOSAR.

The company joined the Eclipse foundation early in 2006 and is now actively involved, together with a few other AUTOSAR Core and Premium members, in an initiative aiming at launching an Eclipse project for an open tool development platform for AUTOSAR.

In October 2006, together with other Eclipse members sponsoring the event, TNI-Software organized Eclipse Now You Can in Paris, a one-day event (and a smashing success) focusing on synergies and convergence between what is happening in the Eclipse open source community and today's growing industrial needs.
