probably of interest and we should see who will do this study
and follow up on it.
The European Commission, Directorate-General for Communications Networks,
Content and Technology, Directorate E: Future Networks, Unit E2: Cloud and
Software has put out the following tender:
The Impact of Open Source Software and Hardware on Technological Independence,
Competitiveness and Innovation in the EU Economy — Smart 2019/0011
Reference number: SMART 2019/0011
The objective of the study is to investigate in detail the economic impact of
open source software and hardware on the European economy. The study should
identify strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and challenges of open source
in relevant ICT policies (e.g. cybersecurity, Artificial Intelligence (AI),
Digitising the European industry, the connected car, HPC, big data,
distributed ledger technologies, etc.). The study should gather evidence in
monetary terms of the footprint of open source in the EU economy.
Finally, the study should propose a list of policy options that can maximize
the benefit of open source in support of a competitive EU software and
hardware industry and an eco-friendly transformation of the EU economy.
