SAVE THE DATE: 10 years of the EU Open Source Policy Summit | 2 February 2024

The EU Open Source Policy Summit is the main European forum for Open Source policy discussions at the highest level. 

2024 is the 10th Summit, marking the importance of open technologies and open source and making this edition a special one. A decade of connecting Open Source stakeholders with policymakers proves the need for a space for these exchanges.

What started as a 10-person meeting of the minds on the then-niche subject of Open Source policy has steadily grown every year. Our 2023 edition gathered almost 200 high-level participants in Brussels from the public and private sector.

The online edition united over 1,000 people from all over the world, bringing a new, global dimension to the Summit. Participants joined from Europe, the US, India, Japan, Brazil and beyond. 

While waiting for the speaker announcements, the venue, topics discussed and other information about 2024 Summit, take a look at the recordings of the 2023 edition.
