Brightway was originally developed by Chris Mutel during his doctoral research. Brightway would have been possible without the incredibly generous support of Professor Stefanie Hellweg of ETH Zürich. Today, Brightway is a highly active software ecosystem maintained by developers and life-cycle practitioners from academia and industry.
