The European Commission’s Open Source Observatory (OSOR) is organising a series of webinars to share collective knowledge on the use of Open Source Software (OSS) in public administration. This second webinar is scheduled on Tuesday 13 June, from 1 to 3pm CET, and is focused on “Mapping the public sector needs”. The webinar aims to summarize the dialogues between private and public sector. After a first workshop which discussed challenges, the second workshop focussed on possible ways forward. Be it implementing new solutions, adapting existing systems to local contexts, fulfilling local legal requirements or finding the right tools, good collaboration between the public and private sector can greatly facilitate development of open administrations.
The webinar is open to all and would be of interest to anyone involved in making IT policy and decisions in public administration, implementers, open source providers and so on.
The series of webinars aims to spread the knowledge to a large audience, both on the day of the webinar and through the recording and materials produced after the webinar. Interested individuals can register for the webinar through the link provided.
