Registration for the conference "OSOR Turns 15: From Pioneering to Mainstreaming Open Technologies in Public Services” is now open. The OSOR community, together with open-source practitioners and enthusiasts from different walks of life, will gather on 21 November in Brussels to celebrate the European Commission Open Source Observatory’s (OSOR) 15th anniversary.  

Here is what you can expect:

  • High-profile panels discussing topics most pertinent to open-source use in the public sector:
    - policies and strategies
    - the role of governmental Open Source Programme Offices in addressing challenges to adopt open technologies and work towards full interoperability of EU public services
    - and the most effective ways to leverage the breadth of knowledge and experience throughout the EU for a more sustainable digital transformation at a local level.
  • A great opportunity to network with like-minded people who work for the benefit of open source in the public sector.
  • The grand finale of the OSOR Awards contest, showcasing the best European open-source solutions initiatives and developed by or for public administrations.
  • An exhibition of the solutions and initiatives nominated for the OSOR Awards.

The conference website provides an overview of the agenda and more information about the panel talks.

The event will take place in the Steigenberger Wiltcher's Hotel in Brussels. Online participation is also possible, but you need to register for both modes.
