Galician government launches a promotion campaign on open source

OSOR.euThe government of Galicia, one of Spain’s autonomous regions, wants to boost the use of free and open source software by its public administrations and citizens.

Previous initiatives on free and open source software have not yet resulted in an increased uptake by public administrations, companies or citizens, writes the ministry. “These actions were isolated and lacked coordination and an overall strategy.”

One of these earlier activities is the Mancomun open source reference and service centre, which started in 2005 and which aims to provide resources and services for regional innovative IT companies.
