Thank you for participating in this event! We were impressed with the engagement of our audience and glad to see such an interest in the future of Open Source policy. You can consult the slides of our study team’s presentation – feel free to share it.

Join OpenForum Europe and Fraunhofer ISI on 5 November to learn about the first results of the European Commission Open Source study and listen to Open Source leaders explain their impact.

The study team is happy to be joined again by Frank Nagle of the Harvard Business School to introduce alongside his research.

This will be complemented by many Open Source leaders, putting the results of the study into context in a number of thematic panels on research, SMEs and growth, the public sector and industry.

In addition, the European Commission will present their views, including the new European Commission Open Source Strategy to participants.
