Open Source Software Country Intelligence

OSOR's open source software country intelligence aims to provide insights on all EU Member States and countries beyond in the domain of open source software policies and initiatives. On this page, you will find:

  1. Country intelligence reports and factsheets: The country intelligence is presented in two formats: a short report with an overview of policies and existing legal frameworks as well as open source software policies and initiatives. A factsheet visually complements every report. Where possible, after our desk research, the reports were validated by national contact points with expertise on this subject matter in their country.
  2. Status of open source software in Europe report: The report addresses how European countries have incorporated OSS as part of their policy and legal framework, be it through initiatives specifically focused on OSS or broader digitalisation initiatives. The report also examines the governance of the policy and legal frameworks, with a focus on two key parties: governmental actors and strategic players (i.e. associations, organisations). Furthermore, the report also examines public sector OSS initiatives and categorises them comprehensively.
  3. OSOR presentation at the 2020 OW2 Conference: 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.
