Future trends of the use of open-source software in public administration - a regional perspective

by xavier last modified 2009-11-20 17:28

This seminar, organized by the Region of Extremadura - Spain, will include a discussion concerning current trends and future perspectives of open source software in European regions. During the roundtable, Xavier Heymans, CEO of Zea Partners, will present the PloneGov initiative. The event will take place in Brussels at Committee of the Regions (CoR) which is the political assembly that provides the regional and local levels with a voice in EU policy development and EU legislation.

As a pioneer in the field of open-source software, the Regional Government of Extremadura would like to launch a debate on the current use of this type of software in regional public administration, together with the European institutions and other European regions.

Extremadura is a pioneer in this field thanks to gnuLinEx, which is Extremadura´s open source software, so it can be modified, studied and improved with no legal restrictions. For the Regional Government, gnuLinEx is the real product of the Information Society that changes the world and the technological tool used in education, the public health system, the administration and businesses in the near future. It won the European prize to regional innovation in the field of information society in 2004.
