Openness, Open Data, and Open Source have become essential elements of publicly funded research projects. Nowadays, the question is not anymore IF you do Open Source in your research project but HOW you implement a successful Open Source strategy. In this interactive session we would like to share experiences and best practices for creating sustainable technologies in open source, especially for research.
We will briefly introduce the Eclipse Foundation’s approach to supporting sustainability for research projects, from proposal phase to beyond project lifetime. The session will cover three pillars:
- Eclipse development process for research projects aka Research Labs
- Open Source as sustainability strategy for research projects
- Dissemination and community building to maximize Open Source impact
We’ll then open the floor to discussions about your experiences, best practices and feedback. Beer is welcome ;)
This session will be co-hosted by Philippe Krief, Marco Jahn and Susan Iwai, Eclipse Foundation.
