Active for more than 20 years, the Open Source Initiative (OSI) is a global non-profit, that strives to raise awareness and adoption of open source software and to bring together open source communities.  

The Practical Open Source Information event is designed as a forum where speakers with extensive experience in the field can exchange with new adopters about the implementation of open source, including how to get up to speed more quickly and avoid some of the mistakes others have made. Sessions will focus on various subjects such as:  

  • How to become a more open source savvy lawyer? 
  • How to incorporate open source into your procurement processes?
  • How to pitch the value of open source internally?
  • What are the use cases for the newer licenses?
  • How to find solid open source legal advice?
  • How to choose a license? 

This event, which will be held in English, is intended for organisations of all sizes and mostly non-profits, academics and companies.  

The registration is mandatory and free of charge.
