OFE Lounge Series: Standardisation and Open Source
04 March 2021
Discussing the evolving role of
Open Source in Standardisation
From 11 February 2021, for six weeks OFE will host leading Standardisation and Open Source organisations to speak about their approach to how Open Source is changing Standardisation.
This is also building on work done before, for example by the JRC study “The Relationship Between Open Source Software and Standard Setting”, but also OFE’s work on “Standardisation and Open Source – Bringing them together” for the Commission.

Agenda will be announced
The OFE Lounge will be a series of after work online sessions held every Thursday starting mid February. It aims at bringing together standardisation and open source organisations to share their approach to the evolving role of open source in standardisation. The aim is to support information sharing between relevant standardisation and open source organisations, to help organisations in learning from each other, facilitate best practice sharing, identify opportunities and challenges and also to inform policy makers and all other interested parties.
