Open Source Software Communities


Project description

OSSCOM aims to install innovative partnership structures that link with enterprises towards a wider spread of OSS and strengthening quality and relevance to OSS technology education. It will leverage EU partner experiences in linking to enterprises and to create synergies among national partner institutions with a goal to support the development of OSS communities and innovation environments. Partners will contribute to developing OSS resources and products at a larger scale through inviting regional key stakeholders, such as ministries, educational institutions, enterprises, and civil society. OSSCOM plans to support installing OSS as feasible alternative to proprietary software in many institutions, enterprises, and communities at the national levels, providing a means of reducing the cost of ICT investment and offering a potential for more flexible and faster technology innovation.
