Open source software gained hold with the rise of the Internet. The open source software movement arose to clarify copyright, licensing, domain, and consumer issues. In the past decade, the open source software development approach has gained popularity and has become an integral part of the work of many researchers, particularly in technology related fields, whereby software is produced as an output of the work of the researcher.

There are benefits in the open approach to sharing, but also challenges. The ambition of the presentation is to share the approach used at TU Delft to gain a better understanding of the needs of researchers in the area of open source software as output of the researcher. The intention of the presentation is to provide inspiration to those in Education who may find it interesting to learn from the approach applied to research.

The presentation is not technical in nature intended to be accessible to those with limited knowledge of the subject. It will include definitions of open source software (OSS) and it’s applicability for science. How TU Delft is viewing the increasing adoption of open source software and the priorities that are being worked on. The approach that was taken during 2017 will also be shared, including what has been learnt so far. In addition, activities that are being planned during 2018 will be presented.

Finally, the session will wrap up with an opportunity to ask questions and exchange ideas on the applicability of the approach to the context of Education.
