November 5, 2020 @ 14:00 - 18:30


European Commission Study on the Impact of Open Source Software and Hardware

On 5 November the study team will for the first time reveal early results to the public. They will be joined by Frank Nagle of the Harvard Business School to contextualise the study results with his research.

  • How much does Open Source Software contribute to the European economy?
  • What should European policymakers learn from successful and failed projects?
  • What is the potential of Open Source Hardware and how can Europe gain an early foothold here?
  • Where have governments around the world succeeded with Open Source policies?

The event will feature keynote speakers from the European Commission’s DG CNECT and DG DIGIT as well as European Member States, providing an early insight into new initiatives that will be announced soon. In addition, they will be joined by a list of exciting speakers in panel discussions focusing on research, SMEs and growth, industry and the public sector.

More speakers and the full agenda will be announced soon.

OpenForum Europe (OFE) is an independent think tank which explains the merits of openness in computing to policy makers and communities across Europe.
