Open source is driving innovation and collaboration around the world, and has become strategic to European industry.
For many years, the Eclipse Foundation has been supporting research dissemination and open collaboration between a variety of stakeholders including Horizon 2020, ITEA 3, The Electronic Components and Systems for European Leadership (ECSEL) Joint Undertaking, and Bundesministeriums für Bildung und Forschung (BMBF), the Federal Ministry of Education and Research in Germany.
We support European researchers and academics to help create, evolve, and sustain open source software projects by empowering them to build open, entrepreneurial ecosystems that enable collaboration between industry players and technology adopters. This support has been observed in a number of European projects backed by the Eclipse Foundation, which are discussed in the case study.
