Open Source Repository: Public Launch of the European Open Source Repository

The launch of the Open Source Observatory and Repository for European Public Administrations will be held in Màlaga on the 20th of October during the Open Source World Conference, one of the most important FLOSS event in Europe.

The draft agenda, available at the IDABC website, starts at 9.15 with a an hour workshop on FLOSS procurement, a very hot topic at least by Italian public administrations. Marco Battistoni, Unisys OSOR Technical Manager, will later introduce the audience to the new European repository, talking about the platform and its services.

In the afternoon a round table moderated by Karel DeVriendt, IDABC Head of Unit, will give highlights on a selection of European open source projects. Among them Wollmux and the Qualipso project.
