OFE Lounge 2024: Standardisation and Open Source in the Age of Software Regulation
February 22 - March 21
This webinar series is organised under the umbrella of StandICT.eu 2026.
The OFE Lounge 2024 seeks to bridge standardisation and open source organisations, creating a platform to discuss the changing dynamics of software development and ICT standardisation. Drawing from previous iterations of the OFE Lounge Series, as well as studies such as the JRC’s “The Relationship Between Open Source Software and Standard Setting” and OFE’s study “Standardisation and Open Source – Bringing them together” for the European Commission, this series aims to facilitate knowledge transfer between significant open source and standardisation entities, as well as the European Commission. For this iteration of the series, we will focus on the standardisation activities following new EU regulation with implications for software development, such as the Cyber Resilience Act, the New Product Liability Directive and the AI Act.
All sessions will adhere to the Chatham House Rule.
