The OSPO is not just for Corporations. OSPOs are a powerful & flexible construct for organizations to achieve their policy goals around open source. For governments in the EU, from cites to nations, the OSPO offers us all a unique opportunity for structured collaboration in & between governments, industry, academia within Europe and on the global stage. In this panel, we talk to 4 panelists heavily involved in researching, building, and structuring Open Source policy for EU governments about how they are building OSPO++. Come learn about OSPO++, and how OSPO++ may help the layers of governments where you live achieve Open Source success.
