On 4 February 2022, a physical and online event ‘EU Open Source Policy summit 2022' will be organised by OpenForum Europe, a non-for-profit think tank specialised on open source. This event will bring together global technology and policy leaders to discuss how open source collaboration and competition are being rethought to solve complex global challenges.
Open Technologies and Open Source are a source for optimism. ‘Open’ lowers the barriers to competition, delivers collaborative innovation, increases welfare, while letting end-users maintain control and autonomy. Open and collaborative digital innovation is no longer a theoretical concept. It is the modus operandi of companies and countries that engage at the cutting edge of the technological and societal innovation needed to tackle the grand challenges.
The EU Open Source Policy Summit 2022 will welcome two keynote speakers:
- Mike Milinkovich, executive director of the Eclipse Foundation
- Hans Roth, senior vice-president and general manager of global services at RedHat
The sessions, panels and speakers will be communicated in the coming weeks and months on the OpenForum Europe website.
