The OpenForum Academy (OFA) symposium offers the opportunity for critical and scholarly discourse on the European Commission study on “The impact of Open Source Software and Hardware on technological independence, competitiveness and innovation in the EU economy”.

The European Commission Open Source Impact study represents a landmark in Open Source research. It provides a comprehensive model of the economic impact of Open Source, analysis of success cases and failures as well as relevant factors, a stakeholder survey, policy analysis in Europe and around the world and finally policy recommendations directed at the European Commission.

We are delighted by the publication of the final study report and we expect it to shape Open Source policy for years to come.

The symposium will allow researchers in the field to exchange on the latest Open Source research, identify research gaps and contextualise their research with the findings from the European Commission study. A symposium book will be published after the conclusion of the event.

The study was conducted by Fraunhofer ISI, OpenForum Europe, Andrew Katz and Mirko Boehm. The authors of the study will be present to discuss decisions taken, motivations and outcomes beyond the final report.
