Dear all,

Perhaps our upcoming event on OSPOs in governments and universities would
be of interest to you. More information and registrations below.

The establishment of Open Source Program Offices (OSPOs) to achieve open
source goals is gaining momentum in the public sector, in academia and
beyond and we see these developments on a city, regional, national and
supranational level.

This matters because the OSPO construct was a key enabler in unlocking vast
amounts of value for the ICT industry. Now the question is how OSPOs in
government can help deliver value for citizens and this event aims at
addressing this question.

17:00 - 18:30 CET

The panelists will outline the state of thinking around institutionalising
open source work in the academic and public sectors (and beyond) and
discuss how different OSPO configurations can help institutions to respond
to demands for greater transparency and trust in technology and public
institutions, accelerate digital transformation and enhance the EU’s
strategic autonomy in the digital field.
