Friends of Eclipse,
Eclipse is an open source community that benefits millions of developers around the world each and every day! During the month of September, we are asking you to give back to our wonderful open source community. All donations will be used to improve Eclipse technology. Your contribution counts!
We thank you for this gesture, and for giving back to our community.
The University of Skovde is one of the most specialised universities in Sweden and our research is focused on the development and use of advanced information technology systems and models. Areas of expertise include organisational and technological aspects of the ICT area. Over a number of years research has addressed various aspects of openness. We have significant experience with research and practice related to different stakeholder roles (including providers, developers and users) related to Open Source and Open Standards. Previous activities include involvement as partner and leader in several international and national research projects. In collaboration with leading academic partners we conducted rigorous research in the EU FP6 CALIBRE project (2004-2006), which involved extensive interaction with European industry and presented a roadmap for future research on the Open Source phenomenon. As partners in the CALIBRE-project, the ITEA-project COSI and the ITEA2-project OPEES, we have experience of international collaboration, and close collaboration with many leading researchers and practitioners in areas related to the Open Source phenomenon. Current activities include research on various aspects of openness impacting on long-term sustainability of software systems with associated digital assets.
