  3. INFORMATION OBSERVATORY Publishes information, experiences and best practices around the

    use of open source software in public administrations. Additionally, the Knowledge Centre gives access to key resources such as studies and guidelines. COMMUNITY BUILDING Promotes open source software through community engagement activities such as participation in events, social media, and production and publication of content. ASSISTANCE & SUPPORT Provides information and offers ad-hoc legal support services on the licensing of open source software solutions in cooperation with the EUPL collection. “OSOR aims to become a trustworthy observatory that provides FOSS expertise and information as well as serves as middle-ground to connect European Public Administrations with other relevant stakeholders. To reach this objective, OSOR will support a dynamic community and further promote the use of Free and Open Source software.” OSOR
