FOSS4G 2022 general tracks

Open source at the European Commission
2022-08-25, 09:00–09:30 (Europe/Rome), Auditorium

This talk by Thomas Gageik, Director Digital Business Solutions (DIGIT.B) at the European Commission will get you up to speed on the most recent actions to encourage free and open source in and around the Commission. This is an introduction to the session organised by the EC, and we will show you what has changed since the adoption of the reinvigorated open source strategy in October 2020.
Our topics include: what have we done to make it easier for the Commission to share software as open source, and how can we contribute to existing free/open source software tools. We will show you how the Commission is helping to strengthen the security of open source software, and how we are networking with other organisations to help open source to progress in public services across the EU.

The talk will also introduce you to the open source programme office. The EC OSPO, created in 2020, is here to help Commission projects with free/open source.
