Do you mean the license, e.g. the licensing of software produced
within publicly funded third level institutions for instance or the
licensing of data gathered using public money?
Or do you mean the use of the software? There is a lot of very good
software for instance in the area of clustering and scheduling perhaps
there are institutional/governance issues that make the use of this
So what is the purpose of this policy, saving money, interoperability,
preventing vendor lock in, data sharing, innovation?
