Join us for the Research@Eclipse Agora meeting! We have selected three topics that we think are especially relevant for researchers, academics and participants from government institutions.
OSPO++ Working Group: bringing an Open Source Program Office to your organization
Privacy and Data Protection - implications for researchers
Research@Eclipse - enabling project sustainability for research
The Agora will be an open discussion forum. We’re open to additional topics or adding an informal session to one of the upcoming evenings. Send your ideas to research (at) eclipse.org.
The Rise of the Open Source Program Office (OSPO) in Industry, Academia, and Municipal Government
Over the past 20 years of Open Source implementation, a best practice has emerged in industry involving the construct of the Open Source Program Office (OSPO). The best OSPOs go beyond housekeeping matters such as licensing, and extend to solve problems in the greater Open Source community through collective effort. Can Municipalities and Universities achieve their policy goals and support healthy open source communities through OSPOs as well? The OSPO++ Working Group believes they can, and is building a community of institutions embarking on this journey together.
This session will introduce EclipseCon members to the OSPO++ construct and provide interactive discussion breakouts on the topic. It will review real-world examples including Johns Hopkins University, LERO & the country of Ireland, and the City of Paris.
The session will be co-hosted by Jacob Green and Richard Littauer (of SustainOS & Mosslabs.io).
