OFA Symposium 2021: The European Commission Open Source Study

OFA Symposium 2021

On 16 November 2021, SWForum.eu is participating in the OpenForum Academy (OFA) symposium, which is on an important topic that SWForum.eu is supporting.

The OpenForum Academy (OFA) symposium offers the opportunity for critical and scholarly discourse on the European Commission study on “The impact of Open Source Software and Hardware on technological independence, competitiveness and innovation in the EU economy”.

The European Commission Open Source Impact study represents a landmark in Open Source research. It provides a comprehensive model of the economic impact of Open Source, analysis of success cases and failures as well as relevant factors, a stakeholder survey, policy analysis in Europe and around the world and finally policy recommendations directed at the European Commission.

They are delighted by the publication of the final study report and we expect it to shape Open Source policy for years to come.

The symposium will allow researchers in the field to exchange on the latest Open Source research, identify research gaps and contextualise their research with the findings from the European Commission study. A symposium book will be published after the conclusion of the event.
