Public recognition scheme for Open Source

Expected Outcome:

Projects are expected to contribute to both of the following outcomes:

  • Establishment of a system of European annual awards that acts as a spotlight stirring up contributions to Open Source Software and Hardware projects.
  • Increased interest for the contribution to, integration of and exploitation of Open Source assets

Scope:

The action should first develop a scheme including a list of fields related to Open Source. An indicative but non-exhaustive nor obligatory list of topics could include deep contributions to kernel code, brilliant utilization of open source in companies’ new developments. The action should elaborate an adequate process to

  • scrutinize different fields of action relevant to open source,
  • select appropriate candidates for being recognised,
  • implement adequate award ceremonies.

Proposals should involve appropriate expertise in Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH), in particular in sociology and human behaviour, to achieve a wider interest in the efficient exploitation of available open source assets.

Proposals submitted under this topic should include an exploitation strategy, as outlined in the introduction to this Destination, which allows recurrent awards.

Additionally, a strategy for skills development should be presented, associating social partners when relevant.

Projects should build on or seek collaboration with existing projects and develop synergies with other relevant European, national or regional initiatives, funding programmes.

In this topic the integration of the gender dimension (sex and gender analysis) in research and innovation content is not a mandatory requirement
