Following the January 2023 publication from Linux Foundation Research entitled Enabling Global Collaboration: How Open Source Leaders are Confronting the Challenges of Fragmentation, the Linux Foundation is hosting an invitational, Geneva-based Congress to explore how to address gaps identified in the report, and create new opportunities to enhance ecosystem-wide collaboration on important topics.

With discussions led by open source foundation leaders and key stakeholders, the Open Source Congress aims to identify and advance common interests within and across project communities on issues such as regulation, cybersecurity, sustainability, and diversity, equity, and inclusion. Among the objectives is the development of an open source “Credo,” or statement of common values, as well as a research report that captures the key findings and discussions.

Enterprise and non-profit foundation sponsors will be given the opportunity to invite delegates as observers and to propose questions and actions for consideration.
