Inductiva Research Labs

Large-Scale Simulation, made easy

Access dozens of open-source physical simulation packages from your laptop via a simple Python API. No software configuration headaches. No hardware setup issues.

Our mission is to empower scientists and engineers to solve real world problems using simulation + AI.



We try to develop solutions that are as simple to use as possible so that scientists and engineers can invest their time and talent in addressing truly complex problems.


We believe that World-scale problems can only be addressed when the whole World works together. We want to contribute to that global effort, develop solutions for the community, and invest in developing partnerships that move us closer to a better World.


As builders, we know how hard it is to build something new, and how frustrating it is to work with insufficient tools. We happily do some of the heavy-lifting for you so that you don’t have to.


There are truly large problems that could benefit from a seamless combination of simulation and AI, including clean energy, climate change and global health. Therefore, we set ourselves ambitious goals and we focus on executing them step by step, with a profound wish to have positive impact.
