Event description

Description

"Free Software Publisher Spotlight" is a series of events organised in collaboration with the Libre Endowment Fund, the CNLL and in partnership with Cap Digital. It aims to raise awareness for European Free Software Publishers, their core competencies, their contribution to software technology and ways to fund R&D of Free Software through available tax cuts and incentives.

Each event introduces five software publishers through success cases which highlights their expertise in specific technological fields, their R&D investments or their ability to successfully deliver mission-critical applications for industry, government and academia.

The series also tries to bring together leading Free Software Publishers with industry and public administration decision makers. It aims to present a platform for exchange and growing a network based on participants' respective capacities and technical interests facilitating cooperation and potential future projects that include initiatives for joint national and European R&D projects under the aegis of Cap Digital or feature-based evolution and maintenance of specific Free software solutions through the Libre Endowment Fund (FDL)
