A note from the chairman: The Open Source Consortium is transitioning to the new brand “OpenUK” as this more closely represents the purpose of the organisation. Please bear with us whilst we make the changes to our brand and website during 2016.

OpenUK represents companies and individuals delivering practical solutions and advice based on open standards and free and open source software.

We serve our members as a trade association, giving them greater influence than they could achieve alone, by providing a collective voice to government and other public bodies.

We represent a body of expertise and experience, by providing recommendations and access to solutions and advice on best practice in the industry.

We campaign for the use of open standards in all aspects of public and commercial life, promoting the unique advantages of free and open source software.
