Open Source Software Country Intelligence

OSOR's open source software country intelligence aims to provide insights on all EU Member States and the United Kingdom in the domain of open source software policies and initiatives. The country intelligence reports and their respective factsheets are published as part of the Open Source Observatory (OSOR) project of the ISA² Programme

The country intelligence will be presented in two formats: a short report with an overview of policies and existing legal frameworks throughout the 27 EU Member States and the UK as well as open source software initiatives, and a factsheet visually complementing the report. Once the analysis of all 28 countries is completed, a comprehensive study will be performed to spot trends and strengths throughout the European Union and to share best practices. 

The 28 reports and factsheets were published one at a time. The comprehensive study on the status of open source software policies in Europe will be available by November 2020.

The study on open source software policies will consist of the following chapters:

  1. General context of open source software policies in Public Administration  
  2. Actors
  3. Policy and legal framework
  4. Open source software initiatives at all levels of Government

In the context of the 2020 OW2 conference, the OSOR team provided an overview of the country intelligence reports by presenting two aspects: public sector bodies addressing open source software and legal and political initiatives specifically addressing open source software. Have a look to learn more about key governmental bodies and examples of political and legal frameworks addressing open source!
