Thank you for sending your applications.

We are glad to share the launch of the SWForum Fellowship Programme.

The Programme has engaged six experts from a variety of backgrounds and institutions, who will be contributing insights and perspectives on critical areas in software technology today, such as open source and artificial intelligence. In addition to technical expertise, the group of experts will also be providing policy-related contributions, targeting not only decision-makers with recommendations to inform and improve the elaboration of software-related policies and programmes, but also practitioners in the field, with analyses in order to help them understand and deal with the effects of these policies on their products, services, and competitive strategies.

Read the full articles from our fellow experts and join the conversation by sharing your thoughts today.

We also encourage you to share your opinions and news that could be published in the Online SW-Forum (research, news, events, or relevant publications, for example) by signing up for a free account and having your say in shaping the future of software technology in Europe.
