Open Source Software: vivid discussions at workshop about the future of OSS

Experts from all over Europe but also from the US came together on 14 and 15 November 2019 in Brussels for the workshop “Open Source beyond 2020 – Powering a digital Europe”. During twelve different sessions they outlined the challenges which, in their view, should be tackled in the future by the European Commission.

The workshop was co-organised by Directorate-General for Communications Networks, Content and Technology (DG CONNECT) and Directorate-General for Informatics (DIGIT) from the European Commission.

More than 160 experts and interested parties have registered to exchange views and underline the importance of digital skills for Open Source, its role as innovation enabler, Open Source and the ICT industry, Open Source in the public sector and many more.

Some of the sessions were pure discussion rounds whereas others were set-up around panellists with presentations followed by a round of questions and answers.
