What do we mean by Open Governance

What do we mean by Open Governance, and where are we going? We will look at current examples and expand upon those best practices in the Open Source, Academia, Nonprofit, and Standards world.


Florent has been involved (both personally and professionally) in the FLOSS community since 1999. Professionally, Florent has worked for nearly 20 years in a consulting company as a Open Source advisor for large companies, helping them with software quality, Open Source governance, licensing, Innersource, as well as change management. Today, as Open Source Services Team Lead, he’s helping (new) Eclipse members and projects better understand, manage and master Open Source. He’s also an active participant in the OSPO Alliance and the Good Governance Initiative. On his personal side, he’s an administrator and board member at LinuxFr.org (reference french-speaking, community driven website about Free and Open Source software).
