Information

In this talk, open source practitioners and proponents from different corners of the European open source ecosystem (national governments, a European advocacy group and national open technology association) will present their views on the role of open source in the public sector. We will try to flesh out aspects of “the open source way” that contribute to the efficient development of public services and, in turn, are beneficial to citizens and businesses. As any engagement with open source should never be a one-way street, we will also discuss how the public sector can contribute to the open source ecosystem.
