European Opensource Legal Event 2020

This year's EOLE conference, held in association with CSI Piemonte, in the frame of Merge-IT, in Torino on 2nd April 2020, will focus on the current legal issues of creating and using free and open source software in public administration, from a practical perspective: what is really being done in practice, what legal issues are posing challenges, how are these being dealt with, and what are the practical recommendations for administrations and other stakeholders (open source projects and private sector) for not just dealing with free and open source in the public sector, but promoting it as an efficient, trusted and legitimate solution.

Issues that will be debated include:

  • free and open source software in public tenders and bids and public contracts
  • licensing of public administration code
  • legal structures and processes for sustaining public FOSS projects and communities around them
  • public sector collaborations around FOSS projects
  • open source and research centers & Open Science
  • warranties and liability for the public sector, using or distributing free and open source software
  • legal skills for FOSS competence centers and training for the public sector
