Our “Advisory Board – Committee of Experts” has been founded to bring open source closer to the business world and organizations. Under this perspective, we have created a path that allows us to listen to all parties and be at the forefront of innovation. In this way we obtain a vision coming from different points of view thanks to the variety of actors involved. Our committee of experts is made up of leading personalities from the open source that represent from their corporations or institutions all the agents of the sector.
