Présentation longue

OSOR.eu (www.OSOR.eu) aims to support the collaborative development of Open Source Software (OSS) applications and solutions for Public Administrations, particularly cross-border collaborations and exchanges of software and knowledge (studies, news items and case studies). _Public Administration project owners or developers are invited to open projects on the OSOR.eu platform and to license their content or source code under a recognised Open Source license, thus giving a larger public the possibility to test and use their solutions, provide feedback, and contribute to improving the software’s quality.
OSOR.eu also promotes and links to the work of national repositories, encouraging the emergence of a pan-European federation of Open Source Software repositories.
Today, the OSOR.eu hosts 80+ projects (https://forge.osor.eu/) and federates an additional 7000+ in the national repositories.
Re-use and collaboration will increase the number of Public Administration users and improve interoperability and sustainability, thanks to the size and motivation of the OSOR.eu communities. Among the OSOR.eu communities are : PloneGov, Open Office and ODF in Public Authorities, GIS/SDI, ... Users are encouraged to join a community (http://www.osor.eu/communities/osor), open a new one, or have their say on the OSOR.eu services through the OSOR community (http://www.osor.eu/communities/osor).
