The open source software country intelligence aims to provide insights on all EU Member States in the domain of open source software policies and initiatives. The country intelligence reports and their respective factsheets are published as part of the Open Source Observatory (OSOR) project of the ISA² Programme.
The country intelligence will be presented in two formats: a short report with an overview of policies and existing legal frameworks throughout the Member States as well as open source software initiatives, and a factsheet visually complementing the report. Once the analysis of all 28 countries is completed, a comprehensive study will be performed to spot trends and strengths throughout the European Union and to share best practices.
The 28 reports and factsheets will be published one at a time. The goal is to publish ten country intelligence documents by March 2020 and to share the following eighteen by May 2020. The comprehensive study on the state of play of open source software policies in Europe will be available by June 2020.
The study on open source software policies will consist of the following chapters:
- General context of open source software policies in Public Administration
- Policy and legal framework
- Open source software initiatives at all levels of Government
