October 1, 2010, from 11:00 AM to 04:00 PM - Register >

  

Slowly but surely, Free/Libre/Open Source Software (FLOSS) is revolutionizing IT innovation and strategies. In a few years, what was created by a small group of developers and communities has now grown to represent 10% of the IT market and become – as Forrester Research recently remarked - "the new hidden backbone of the software industry". For some years now, some visionary communities in industry and public sector bodies have developed dedicated structures to support this move, disseminate knowledge and help enterprises and governments leverage FLOSS to increase competitiveness, innovation and economic growth. While they all come from different backgrounds (Innovation clusters, academics, etc.), focus (e-gov, manufacturing, education, etc.) and business models (public or private funding), all of them have common issues: how to support the adoption of FLOSS most efficiently, where to best position in the FLOSS ecosystem (in complement to, and synergy with FLOSS communities, software vendors, integrators and users), how to set up sustainable funding models... The second edition of the FLOSS COMPETENCE CENTERS SUMMIT intends to bring together managers of key FLOSS Competence Centers worldwide to share experience, define best practices, and increase synergies.

This event is organized by the FLOSS Competence Centers Network.
