Some countries have already started working on free/open-source contribution policies to setup guidelines and best practices to create and contribute to free/open-source software and engage with communities. This effort allows internal reuse within local administrations but is country specific. The objective of this workshop is to deliver a free/open-source contribution policy template that will set up common guidelines and best practices to foster international collaboration and reuse of free/open-source projects between countries. Governments will then have the possibility to instantiate their own policy and thus contribute to algorithm transparency and accountability.

The workshop will mix people from government agencies, academics, IGO, NGO, and private companies working with and for governments to make sure that administrations collaborate effectively with the ecosystem and understand what is expected from them.

Governments:

  • Belgium
