new report co-authored by researchers from the Research Institutes of Sweden (RISE), OSPO++ and Johns Hopkins University (JHU) highlights the benefits that open source can bring to the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).


“Open Source software is at heart of our digital world, powering the cloud, big data analytics, artificial intelligence, and many other cutting edge technologies. It embodies the principles of collaboration, sustainability, inclusivity and innovation, allowing us to build a stronger and more sustainable future.”

“Open Source democratizes access to digital technologies, gives developing countries and startups
everywhere the opportunity to adopt, adapt, and implement solutions tailored to their unique context”

“And therefore, in fostering this collaborative software development, we need to make sure that it benefits communities at large, that it drives us closer to solving humanity’s most urgent challenges, and that it supports the achievement of sustainable development goals.”

“Governments sometimes try to avoid complexity by relying on cloud providers and external IT service specialists. However, we need to retain our own independent expertise to achieve technological sovereignty.”
