Webinar 3 : "Open source governance within public administrations"

January 27, 2021 - 11:30 - 13:00 (CET)

This third webinar will be facilitated by Marco Ciurcina

Open source and free software advantages for public administrations and society at large are increasingly recognized and public policies to foster its adoption are spreading.

But even if nowadays we experience a change of pace, the road to open source and free software adoption by public administration was a long one. One of the clear critical issues of this process was and remains the adaptation of public administrations' organizational models to the practices of the open source and free software communities: it required, and requires, the adoption of innovative organizational practices and a cultural change.

This event digs into this dynamics, providing insights on the governance models of open source and free software projects by the public administrations in different scenarios: projects started by the public administrations, participation by public administrations in projects already under development.
