EU Open Source Policy Community Meeting 2021

24 September 2021


September 24
13:00 - 16:00 CEST

OFE is delighted to invite you to the EU Open Source Policy Community Meeting 2021 on 24th of September from 13:00 to 16:00 CEST.

As we have done now for many years, we will provide an open space to engage on topics brought by new and old members of the EU Open Source Policy Community. This is a great time to gather to discuss and share recent developments and insights. Open Source is higher up than ever on the agenda of the EU policy makers, which makes it essential to foster and further debate between and within the political and technical domains.

The focus will be talks for you, the community participants, and we encourage you to bring your stories and thoughts on EU Open Source policy matters!

Keynote Speaker

Marcel Kolaja

Vice President of the European Parliament The Greens, European Parliament

Call for Proposals

New for this year, as a result of the community growing quickly, is that we have a structured Call for Proposals (CfP). Members of the community are invited to propose talks by submitting a short (300 word) abstract in the registration form. Every speaker selected will have a 10-minutes slot at their disposal for the presentation, along with additional time for a short Q&A. The deadline for the submission of the CfP is the 5th of September at 23:59 CEST.

We ask you to abide by our OFE Community Participation Guidelines before and during the event. This event is not the place to engage in sales activities, or to debate the virtues of individual products and services—it is a forum meant to bring openness forward through policy discussions. 

We are open to all proposals, but we are particularly interested in talks from public officials, community organisations and talks on efforts in member states, both national and regional, on topics such as OSPOs, interoperability, digital autonomy.

The event will be virtual.
